T^O the rapid, symmetrical and beautiful growth 
of the family tree; to the avoidance of all wind- 
storms likely to damage the orchard ; to the eradica- 
tion of the insects of ignorance and immorality certain 
to contaminate the fruit; to the transplantation of 
buds and scions in all agreeable soils ; to the awaken- 
ing of the sleeping branches to bright foliage and 
sweet blossoms ; and to plenteous harvests of golden 
children grown in the sunshine of love, liberty and 
law, this volume is hopefully and affectionately 
dedicated by 



IN ORDER that the reader may readily grasp the method of arrangement 
in this volume, it is recommended that he first read this Preface through, 
second, study the Table of Contents in the front of the book and the 
Index in the back, and third, examine closely the Charts. By doing so he 
will have no trouble to understand the divisions, classifications, numberings 
in parentheses at the right and left of each name, and generally the method 
of treatment which is different from that in nearly all other works on 
genealogy, and, as the author thinks, a decided improvement in point of sim- 
plicity and perspicuity. 

The collection of material for this book was begun by the author in 1888, 
but was continued in a desultory fashion only, as time could be spared from 
other pursuits and as replies to inquiries were received. Much of the long 
delay was caused by the failure to answer questions within a reasonable 
time, or to answer them at all in several instances even after repeated so- 
licitation. It would scarcely be credited were the details of the unconcern 
in this respect to be given, not only among illiterate and obscure members 
of the family, but among those, also, who by reason of education, wealth, 
self-respect and pride, should have sent much more data and taken a far 
greater interest. The author does not intend to rest on his oars under this 
injudicious unconcern, but expects to redouble his efforts to induce all to 
assist in perfecting this record, and to spur all to a deeper love for improve- 
ment and good conduct, and a keener appreciation of life 's possibilities and 
family distinction and honor. 

Of course this book will be found imperfect. It must be considered 
no more than pioneer work. Errors, omissions, unfaithful personal sketches, 
etc., will be encountered; they could not be avoided, but they can be cor- 
rected. It is therefore the author's intention to issue after a few years a 
second volume to supplement the first, in order to correct former errors, 
supply omissions, perfect the character and historic sketches, and add a 
large fund of new matter, particularly reminiscences, incidents in family 
life, other character sketches, outline history of branches, cuts of different 
individuals and of old homesteads, maps, if necessary, and any other items 
worth preservation. All members of the family are therefore earnestly 
requested to send the author as soon as convenient any such matter, whether 
corrections or additional data. Write voluminously on every subject con- 
cerning your branch and a judicious selection therefrom will be made for 

publication in the family bulletin to be established in a short time and sent 
to members of the family, and later, after revision, for incorporation in the 
second volume. 

What to him is a source of the keenest regret is the fact that he has 
been unable to write more coneerning individuals, branches, groups, home- 
steads, incidents, achievements, suiTOundings, etc., and thus add ten-fold 
interest to the narrative. Even those vpho have taken gi-eatest interest in 
the work have cut the author off with the statement that they have done or 
passed through little worth relating. The author does not agree with them. 
Ordinary human instincts should render hundreds of incidents and asso- 
ciations sacred in your heart if you have any heart, and would be read with 
interest and pride by all members of the family capable of such sentiments. 

It is the author's intention to begin as soon as circumstances shall war- 
rant, the publication of a magazine or bulletin on the Goodspeed family, 
to be issued quarterly or semi-annually for the purpose of proving, or "try- 
ing out," if you will permit use of the term, all matter intended for the 
second volume. By means of this bulletin all members will have an oppor- 
tunity to voice their opinions concerning family affairs and place in per- 
manent form any proper family record they may desire. 

It was the design at first to place the portraits and chart of each section 
of Part II in conjunction with that section ; but this was found to be im- 
practicable, as some of the sections were represented by many portraits and 
some by none, and the original plan would have made the book lopsided. 
The portraits therefore, so far as practicable, were inserted in the order of 
branch ages, beginning with the oldest, and located at regular intervals 
throughout the book. The Charts were inserted in the same order at the 
back of the book. 

Soon after the commencement it became apparent that the plan of ex- 
tending this record to the descent of the female branches was too vast and 
exacting to be undertaken. It therefore was confined to the marriages and 
children only of the Goodspeed women. 

It was thought appropriate to exclude from the text proper all sketches 
of families connected by marriage with the Goodspeeds, but in the various 
footnotes to give such families suitable attention so far as the material 
therefor was furnished. This was done. 

As soon as sufficient interest shall have been manifested to warrant such 
a step, it is the intention to call the first general assembly of the Goodspeeds 
for the purpose of effecting an organization which thereafter, it is hoped, 
will be permanent, will hold annual meetings, will continue the publication 
of these records in the future, and will take any other steps that shall be in 
the interest of the family and agreeable to all. 

From the start portraits were collected and as no favoritism could be 
shown, it was determined to engrave all that were supplied. It was realized 
that it would not answer to select those of pei-sons whom the author deemed 

of greatest prominence, because that would likely be unjust, as it would be 
a matter of his opinion only. So it was determined to insert all forwarded, 
if suitable — good, bad and indifferent — and do the best practicable with 
them. They came in every conceivable form and condition — old daguerreo- 
types ; dim and defective tintypes ; small, faded, inferior photographs, taken 
in the infancy of the art ; late photographs about half an inch square, costing 
twenty-five cents a dozen; excellent recent photographs, etc., etc. Many 
were so small or so defective that they would not bear enlargement ; others 
would suffer seriously by reduction ; so it was necessary to make engravings 
of different sizes with the result you see herein. 

Despite the opinions of a few members of the family to the contrary, 
the author regards the portraits one of the most interesting and important 
features of the book. They preserve permanently the faces of indi- 
viduals, enable the reader better to judge the personal qualities and char- 
acteristics of the subjects, and add much to the general completeness of the 
record. He will be pleased to have you send him photographs you wish en- 
graved for the second volume; but if possible, even though you may be 
obliged to make copies, try to send likenesses that will not have to be re- 
turned. Forward cabinet sizas if practicable. Group photographs are par- 
ticularly desired. Note what a triumph is the engraving of the family of 
James C. (1882)! 

Those who have sent likenesses of their immediate relatives to be made 
into engravings can rest with the assurance that the faces of their loved 
ones are now permanently preserved and that copies can be had at any 
time ; while those who neglected or refused to forward such likenesses must 
ever be confronted with the danger that the same, perhaps the only ones in 
existence, are liable to be lost or destroyed. 

For convenience in treatment the genealogy is presented in two di- 
visions : Part I, — ^An account of Roger and Alice and of their descendants 
down to and including the fifth generation; Part II, — An account of the 
males of the fifth generation and of their descendants down to the present 
time. The branches are treated in the order of age beginning with the 
oldest. All persons born Goodspeeds are numbered in consecutive order 
by generations beginning with Roger, the numbers being placed in parenthe- 
ses at the right of each name. Roger is thus Roger (1) ; his children, being 
of the second generation, are numbered from (2) to (8), his grand children, 
^ third generation, are numbered from (9) to (31) ; his great grandchil- 
^ dren, fourth generation, are numbered from (32) to (73), and so on through 
all the generations down to the present. This plan of nimibering the in- 
dividuals by generations will be readily understood from Chart A. It will 
be seen that the number at the right of each name serves to identify each 
individual ; confusion will be avoided if such number be mentioned in all 
reference to each individual. In the parentheses at the left of the names 
are given in figures the generations, and in letters the order of the children 

in their father's family; thus (4c) James (51) means that he is of the 
fourth generation, is the third of his father's children, and his fixed num- 
ber is 51. When spoken of he should be called James (51). The males of 
the fifth generation, who left descendants, or may have left descendants, 
are treated in Sections I to XLIII in Part II. Their names and the Sec- 
tions where treated are shown in the fifth generation on Chart A and in 
the Table of Contents at the front of the book. 

If you will bear certain points in mind when reading the text, you 
will have no trouble to uuderstand fully the arrangement. Take any para- 
graph, as for instance (7a) David (614) on page 277. Of course the "7" 
shows his generation from Roger (1), the "a" shows he is the oldest of his 
father's children and the "614" is his fixed, consecutive or identifying 
number. As stated in the paragraph he married and had (Sa) Charles W. 
0. (1228). The brothers and sistei-s of the latter are of the same genera- 
tion— 8. By looking down the paragraph you wiU fiLnd (8b) Waldo W. W. 
(1229), (8c) Clarissa E. (1230), (8d) David D. W. (1231), (8e) Arza M. 
(1232), and (8f) Eunice E. (1233). Thus Charles, Waldo, Clarissa, 
David, Arza and Eunice must be brothers and sisters, because they are of 
the same generation, are numbered consecutively in the same paragraph 
from a to f and also are numbered consecutively by the identifying num- 
bers from 1228 to 1233 inclusive. There can be no mistake. It is also stated 
that (Sa) Charles W. 0. (1228) married and had (9a) George E. (1962) 
and for the reasons above given the sisters of the latter are (9b) Mary E. 
(1963) and (9c) Martha F. (1964), because all three are of the same gen- 
eration— 9, have the consecutive family niunbers a, b and c, and have the 
consecutive identifying niunbers 1962, 1963 and 1964. Under (9a) George 
E. (1962) it is stated that he married and had (10a) Eleanor M. (2354). 
and, as above shown, the brothers of the latter are (10b) Charles H. (2355) 
and (10c) Harry C. (2356). Get a clear understanding of this arrange- 
ment, and there can be no confusion in your mind. 

Particular attention is called to the Charts, all of which when placed 
together form a complete family tree so far as the same has been traced. 
By looking at the Chart where your name appears, you will see at a glance 
all of your closest relatives of the name; and when reading any Section, 
if you will keep the corresponding Chart before you, an understanding of 
that branch will be greatly facilitated. As well as could be done, the por- 
traits are grouped by Sections, to enable the reader to see the persons 
passing under his mental vision. Over each perpendicular column on the 
Charts is given the corresponding generation. 

No doubt many of the family will feel as keen a disappointment as the 
author does over the fact that the foreign origin of Roger and Alice has not 
been discovered. It has been out of the question to learn this by corre- 
spondence. It seems that nothing short of an extended research of the 
records throughout England will disclose this information. It is not ur- 

likely that their origin may never be discovered, owing to the fact that 
Roger at least belonged to the farming class and therefore was not sufQ- 
ciently prominent to have had any record made of his existence except the 
formal registry of his birth and parentage, in which case the parish where 
he was born must first be found, and owing to the further fact that he prob- 
ably did not come to America with a colony of which a record was kept, or 
in a vessel, a list of the passengers of which was duly filed with the ad- 
miralty. Any clue in this particular will be pursued to the end. 

The author closes with an apology for the incompleteness of the book, 
but feels that he is not to blame. Very meager materials for personal or 
branch sketches were received. In many instances not even an outline 
sketch of the branches was supplied. Think how such sketches would il- 
luminate the dry statistics of births, marriages, and deaths, and shed the 
glow of interest on the hampered narrative! It is well to repeat for em- 
phasis that this volume should be regarded as pioneer work, just as the 
log cabin was the pioneer of the modern mansion. If you will furnish the 
material the architecture of the second volume wiU more closely resemble 
the mansion of today.

THE name Goodspeed is of uncertain origin. It may originally 
have been Godspeed signifying "success," "a prosperous jour- 
ney," "God be with you," in which latter case the motto "Dieu 
avec vous," or "Dieu avec nous" would have been appropriate. Bards- 
ley's Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, with Special American 
Instances, London, 1901, says: "Goodspeed, — Nick.; lit. 'good success,' 
as the sobriquet applied to a fortunate man; Robert Godspeede, C. R. 
(Close Rolls), 9 Henry IV; John Godespede, C. R., 19 Ric. II; Ralph 
Godisped, A., (Hundred Rolls), 1273; probably a direct translation of 
Bonaventure, q. v., Philadelphia 1; Boston (U. S.) 16; New York 3." In 
his London edition of 1897, the same authority had previously said, 
"Ralph Godisped (A), fossilized in our Goodspeed, may represent 'God- 
speed-thee;' " but he also says in a footnote that "Goodspeed may belong 
to the same class as Swift, Golightly, Lightfoot, etc." Bowditch in his 
"Suffolk Surnames" places Goodspeed with names derived from bodily 
peculiarities, as Lightfoot, Speed, Stalker, Rush, Swift, Fleet, Race, etc. 
The name appears quite early in the English records, as shown by the 
following extracts and other data: 

"Calendar of patents rolls, Westminister. Pardon of outlawry to the 
following: William Godsped, of Wyvelesthorn (sic.) for not appearing 
to answer John Warde, chaplain, when sued with John Godsped, touch- 
ing a trespass. May 7, 1380. Buckingham County." 

"Pardon of outlawry to the following: John Tannere for not appear- 


ing when sued with John Godespede and John Fox to render a horse, 
a horse worth 50s to John Spenser, of London. October 23, 1383." 

"Grant to the King's damsel, Kattarine Swetenham, of 40 marks from 
the goods and chattels, forfeited by reason of his outlawry, of John 
Goodspeede of Northlacche (North Leach?), County Gloucester, in lieu 
of the 40 marks which the King promised her at her marriage with his 
yeoman Matthew de Swetenham, provided that she account for any sur- 
plus value of the aforesaid goods and chattels. October 8, 1383." 

"Grant to Matthew de Swetenham, yeoman, of the Chamber, 20£ 
worth of the goods and chattels, valued at 40£, forfeited to the King by 
the outlawry, on a plea of debt, of John Godspede of Northleche, pro- 
vided that he account at the Exchequer for the residue and any surplus 
value above 40£ (marks). June 20, 1385. Westminster." 

"Commission to John de Conele, escheator in the County of Glou- 
cester, Matthew Swetenham and John Eburton to inquire what goods and 
chattels John Godspede of Northleche, County Gloucester, who is out- 
lawed in that county, had there on the day of his outlawry and what is 
their value. June 20, 1385." 

"Pardon of outlawry to John Godespede for not appearing when sued 
with John Fox and John Tannere to render a horse, value 50s, to John 
Spencer of London. October 12, 1385." 

"Pardon, out of regard for Good Friday last, to Robert Godsped, of 
Trenge (Tring, Buckingham County?) County Hertford, for the death 
of John Archebaud, killed at Eggewere on Thursday before the transla- 
tion of St. Thomas the Martyr. May 1, 1396. II Richard II." 

As will be observed, all of these offences, except the one causing the 
death of John Archebaud, were trivial and would have no standing in the 
courts of today, except in civil suits. In those days a man who failed 
or refused to pay his just debts, or refused to obey a legal writ, was out- 
lawed, and in case of the debt his goods and chattel to the extent of the 
proved claim were seized and sold, and in case of the writ his civil rights 
were forfeited. In both cases a pardon restored the offender to his 
previous good standing. Unfortunately the atrocious offense of getting 
in debt and finding it difBcult to get out, was apparently not the exclusive 
prerogative of the ancient members of the family. 

In Index Library, Vol. VIII, p. 74, Calendar of Berkshire, under date 
of 1556, appears the name William Goodspede of Remenham. By the will 
of Sir Thomas Tresham of Russhton, County Northampton, Knight, 
probated May 4, 1559, James Goodspede was given a legacy of 40s. 
James probably lived at Quarrendon (Genealogist, 1891-2). Nicholas 
Putnam (1540-1598) of Wingrave and Stukeley, Eng., married at Win- 


grave January 30, 1577, Margaret (baptised at Wingrave August 16, 
1556) daughter of John and Elizabeth Goodspeed (Cleveland Genealogy, 
Vol. II, p. 1126). 

In Bundle G 7, Bills and Answers, Chancery proceedings, Charles I, 
1625-1649, is the case "37 Goodspeed vs. Goodspeed." In Bundle G 54, 
same, is "30 Goodspeede vs. Deane;" also "26 Goodspeed vs. Hyett;" 
also "18 Goodspeed vs. Hyett." (Index Library, Vol. V, pp. 60, 88, 92, 

At St. Peter's Church, Watford, Eng., May 21, 1637, Joseph Good- 
speed of that place married Isabel "Watts. On July 12, 1686-7, William 
Goodspeede of St. Albans, married Mary Wordell of the same place 
(The Genealogist, Vol. VIII; Hert's Genealogist and Antiquary, Vols. I 
and II). At St. James Church, Clerkenwell, London, on Nov. 22, 1646, 
Mary Goodspeed married Thomas Harrge. At St. Botolph, Bishopgate, 
London, two children of Thomas and Ann Goodspeede were baptised — 
Nathaniel, March 14, 1651, and Thomas Jr., July 24, 1653 (Hallen's Lon- 
don City Church Registers). On February 11, 1690, Nathaniel Grover of 
Chesham, County Bucks, miller, bachelor, aged about thirty years, mar- 
ried Elizabeth Goodspeed of the same place, widow, aged about thirty 
years (marriage allegations in the registry of the vicar general of the 
Archbishop at Canterbury). There occurred at St. Mary, Aldermary, 
Feb. 11, 1723, the marriage "by bans" of Mary Goodspeed and Jobe 
Key. On Nov. 5, 1723, bans were published for the marriage of Edward 
Goodspeed, of St. Giles, without Criplegate, and Ann Catlin, of Christ's 
Church, London (Christ's Church Register, Newgate Street). On March 
1, 1807, Edward Goodspeed married Elizabeth Gorsueh, at St. George's 
Church, Hanover Square, London. In 1884 there lived in London, Eng., 
the following Goodspeeds: Joseph Edward, window blind maker; Fred- 
erick, same business, different location ; Edward, shirt and collar dresser ; 
and Robert (London Directory). 

It has not been learned from what country Roger (1) came, nor in 
what vessel, nor when. The same is true of Alice Layton. The first 
known of Roger is during 1639, when he went to Barnstable, Mass., and 
became one of the founders, or one of the original proprietors, of that 
place. The first known of Alice Layton was her marriage to Roger in 
December, 1641, at Barnstable. Amos Otis surmises that Roger probably 
came from either Devonshire or Somersetshire, Eng., and embarked from 
Barnstaple. He seems to have based this surmise upon Roger's early 
association at Barnstable with other emigrants from those counties. 
There is nothing to show that Roger was a member of Rev. John Loth- 
rop's church in England, nor that he belonged to the Scituate Church 
in Plymouth Colony, nor that he crossed the Atlantic in the ship Griffin 


with Mr. Lothrop's congregation in the early autumn of 1634. Neither 
is there any evidence to show that either Roger or Alice had previously 
been a member of Plymouth Church ; their names do not appear as mem- 
bers at any time on the records of that organization. Had they belonged 
to Plymouth Church in England, they would have retained their member- 
sh^ after coming to the Colonies; there is no evidence to show that they 
belonged to Plymouth Church either in England or in America. 

Roger went to Barnstable in 1639, when Lothrop's congregation did, 
but he did not join Lothrop's church as such until about five years later. 
So far as known he was not a member of any church during this interval 
of five years. An examination of Lothrop's diary and the records at 
Barnstable shows the organization of the church there, with lists of the 
original members, admissions by card or otherwise, baptisms, &c. The 
history of the Barnstable Church is based almost wholly on the diary 
kept by Mr. Lothrop, the original of which seems to have disappeared, 
though an exact copy, transcribed by Mr. Stiles about a hundred years 
ago, is in Yale College Library, and the diary itself was published in the 
Genealogical Register about fifty years ago. The diary shows the original 
membership and a few additions during 1639 and 1640, — after which 
there seems to have been an interval of two or three years when there 
were no additions by card or otherwise, or else some of the pages are 
missing. Then appears the following in two separate lines: "Alice 
Goodspeed joined December 31, 1643. Roger Goodspeed joined July 28, 
1644." There is nothing to show that they joined by dismissal from any 
other church. The entry begins and ends with those words. 

Thus it seems possible if not probable that Roger at least and perhaps 
Alice were not Puritans and perhaps had not previously belonged to any 
church in England. The fact that Roger went to Barnstable with a move- 
ment which was largely, though not wholly, a religious one, was thus inti- 
mately associated with its pastor and membei's, in fact could have associat- 
ed there in business or otherwise with few others, as the church constituted 
almost the whole of the settlement, and that though thus situated he did 
not join the church for five years, seems to prove either that he was not 
religiously inclined and had not before belonged to any church, or that he 
was not a Puritan, but instead was, or had been, an adherent of the 
English Church. Neither did Alice, whose marriage to him occurred at 
Barnstable in December, 1641, join the church there until December, 1643 
— more than two full years after her arrival in the settlement. She was 
surrounded with little else than church influences, visited intimately with 
the members' families, was no doubt offered every inducement, indeed 
had the strong one of a growing family, to join if she believed and felt 
inclined, but still she did not do so for two years. It does not seem prob- 


able that either she or Roger adhered to the English church ; they would 
hardly have been tolerated in the settlement; it seems rather that they 
had not been and were not religiously inclined. 

From the probable fact that Roger did not belong to Plymouth 
Church nor to Barnstable Church until 1644, it appears that he was not 
a member of the religious movements to America. He may have been one 
of "The Merchant Adventurers." Or what is more likely and very prob- 
able, he merely wished like thousands of others to improve his surround- 
ings and America seemed to offer the best opportunity. He probably 
came over in the summer of 1639, remained at Plymouth until fall, or 
perhaps at Scituate, and when the Lothrop movement to Barnstable was 
projected in October joined it. He probably spent the winter of 1639-40 
in building his first house, and in clearing and otherwise preparing a 
tract for cultivation ; his first crops were raised in 1640 no doubt, and by 
1641 he was ready for a wife. It is not improbable that Roger and Alice 
had been acquainted in England and had become engaged there, and that 
she joined him for the purpose of marriage as soon as he had a home 
in readiness. But this is conjecture, of course. However, in this con- 
nection, it is well to bear in mind that Alice Layton did not have a rela- 
tive in the Colonies at that time so far as can be learned. She would 
hardly have left home and friends in England and crossed to the wilder- 
ness of America without the company of a relative or other protector or 
without some excellent reason for doing so. A good reason for doing so 
would have existed in the above supposition. A thorough examination 
of the records of all the colonies at that time fails to disclose the name 
of any other Layton except Thomas of Lynn and she was not his child, 
but may have been his sister or other relative, though there is no evi- 
dence to prove such was a fact. There is no record of her presence in the 
colony until her marriage to Roger in December, 1641. She probably ar- 
rived in the colony during the fall of that year. Also bear in mind that 
the law of Plymouth colony exacted a heavy fine for failure to publish 
intentions to marry. The absence of such a record in Barnstable or else- 
where in the colonies is strong presumptive proof that the publishment 
occurred in England. The correct lives and exemplary conduct of both 
Roger and Alice in the Colonies is proof of their previous respectability, 
pure origin and worthy ancestry. Alice may have been a member of the 
famous Layton family of Yorkshire, a sketch of which follows: 

"The Yorkshire Laytons are all descended from Odardus de Layton, 
or Laton, who, as we learn from the Doomsday Book, in the time of King 
Henry I (1100-1135), owned an immense estate in the West Riding of 
Yorkshire. Shortly after the Doomsday survey, the lord of the manor 


divided his lands between his two eldest sons, John and Henry, giving 
the eastern portion, afterward known as Layton or East Layton, to his 
eldest son John, and the western portion, afterward known as West Lay- 
ton, to his second son Henry. In the first volume of the magnificent his- 
tory of Yorkshire by Marshal General Plantagenet-Harrison, will be 
found a very full account of this, one of the oldest and once most im- 
portant Yorkshire families, as also engravings of the arms of the family, 
which were borne by both branches alike, and of the ancient manor 
houses. There was a third brother, Sir "William Layton, who was the 
ancestor of a well-known family in Cumberland, Durham and Northum- 
berland. The representatives of this branch of the family have the honor 
of knighthood for five successive generations. The Nova Scotia Laytons 
are undoubtedly descended from Henry Layton (who is called in the 
time of King Henry II Henry de West Layton), and the name Francis 
transmitted in the family to the present time, being introduced into it 
in the time of Henry VIII or Elizabeth. This name was first given in the 
family by Roger Layton and his wife Clara, daughter and heiress of Giles 
Burgh of Burgh-Juxta-Caterick, to their son, possibly in compliment 
to Francis Lascelles, of Brackenburg, whose daughter Margaret became 
the wife of John Layton Roger's brother. The first Francis Layton mar- 
ried his cousin Anne Layton, daughter of John, and died October 26, 
1609, aged seventy. He is called "of Kirkley Ravensworth ; " his second 
son Francis who married Margaret, daughter of Sir Nargh Browne, of 
London, being a resident of Newington Butts, Surrey." (From "The Elm- 
wood Batons," by Rev. Arthur W. H. Eaton, B. A., 1895). The arms of 
the Laytons of East and West Layton are described as follows: "Argent, 
— a fesse between six cross crosslets fitehee sable. Crest, — out of a mural 
coronet two wings expanded argent each charged with a cross crosslet 
fitehee sable. Motto, — In omnia paratus (Ready for all things)." (Same 
authority as last.) 

It should be borne in mind that, while primarily the colonizing move- 
ment of the Puritans was a religious one, they would not have crossed the 
ocean to America had they not received reasonable assurance of com- 
fortable homes and surroundings. The English king issued a proclamation 
against emigration to the English colony of Virginia without a ro.yal license 
which was denied the Puritans; but in 1608 they escaped and crossed to 
Amsterdam and a year later went to Leyden where exiles continued to 
join them from England. By 1620 they numbered about three hundred 
persons nearly or quite all of whom in the end went to America. By 1617, 
while yet at Leyden, they became aware of the fact that the Catholic 
Church was likely to interfere with their religious liberty if they re- 
mained there; they then began seeking for another asylum and finally

turned their attention to America. They might not have crossed to 
America at all had it not been for the offers of Thomas "Weston and his 
associate merchants of London, a company organized to effect and stim- 
ulate trade through colonization and otherwise. This company discour- 
aged the Puritans from accepting the offers of the Virginia Company or 
of the Dutch and tendered them money, shipping and a liberal division of 
the products raised in the Colony to be formed. Governor Bradford's 
ovra language concerning the offer of "Weston and his associates was as 
follows: "Not to medle with the Dutch or too much depend on the Vir- 
ginia Company; for if that failed, if they came to resolution, he & such 
marchents as were his friends (together with their own means) would 
sett them forth ; and they should make ready and neither feare wante 
of shipping nor money, for what they wanted should be provided. And 
not so much for him self as for the satisfying of such friends as he should 
procure to adventure in this business they were to draw such articles of 
agreemente, and make such propossitions as might the better induce 
his friends to venture." And Robinson in a letter to Carver under date 
of June 24, 1620, wrote : " You know right well we depended on Weston 
alone, and upon such means as he would procure for this commone bussi- 
nes; and when we had in hand another course with the Dutchmen broke 
it off at his motion, and upon the conditions by him shortly after pro- 

Weston and his associates were known as "The Merchant Adventur- 
ers." Their business was to found colonies for the purpose of making 
money. They furnished vessels to carry out the colonists, gave them 
money, supplied them with provisions and implements and divided pro- 
ducts. It made no difference to them whom they sent out, providing they 
made good and profitable colonists. A religious colony was deemed more 
likely to become profitable than any other, and hence the Puritans were 
sought. But thousands who were not Puritans were sent to the American 
colonies. From the standpoint of the companies colonization was a busi- 
ness for profit; from the standpoint of the non-religious it was a step 
to secure better homes and incomes; and from the standpoint of the 
Puritans and other religious bodies it was a movement to secure both 
material prosperity and religious liberty. Speaking of "The Merchant 
Adventurers," Capt. John Smith, writing in 1624, said, "The adventurers 
which raised the stock to begin and supply this plantation (Plymouth 
Colony — Ed.) were about seventy, some gentlemen, and some merchants, 
some handicraftsmen, some adventuring great sums, some small as their 
estates and affections served. These dwell mostly in London. They are 
not a corporation, but knit together by a voluntary combination in a 


society without restraint or penalty aiming to do good and to plant re- 

The Barnstable church, while of Puritan origin, was, at the outset, 
independent of Plymouth Church. It was founded bj' Rev. John Loth- 
rop, a minister of the Church of England, who, having imbibed Puritan 
principles, renounced his orders and joined the dissenting movement in 
1623. A few years before (1616) Henry Jacob had established in Lon- 
don the first Congregational Church in England and had patterned it on 
the plan of Robinson's organization at Leyden (Plymouth). Upon the 
removal of llr. Jacob to America in 1624, Mr. Lothrop succeeded him as 
pastor of the London Church. The latter "had held their meetings pri- 
vately and escaped the vigilance of their persecutors for some time. At 
length, April 29, 1632, they were discovered by Tomlinson, the pursui- 
vant of the bishop, holding a meeting for religious worship at the house 
of Humphrey Barnet in Blaekfriars. Forty-two of them were appre- 
hended and only eighteen escaped. Mr. Lothrop with others was im- 
prisoned, and there he remained until April, 1634, two full years, and was 

then set at liberty on condition of departing from the kingdom 

He embarked for Boston with about thirty of his church and people and 
arrived there Sept. 18, 1634, in the ship Griffin and on the 27th of the 
same month he proceeded with his friends to Scituate where a consider- 
able settlement had already been made by the "men of Kent," who re- 
ceived Mr. Lothrop as a former acquaintance."* About thirteen mem- 
bers of the London Church who had preceded Mr. Lothrop to Scituate 
and had united with Plymouth Church, rejoined him and his other thirty 
followers upon his arrival at Scituate. The views of the Lothrop congre- 
gation were identical with those of Robinson, of Leyden, who was prop- 
erly the founder of the Independents or Congregationalists. The division 
of Scituate Church and the organization of Barnstable Church were due 
to the need of more land by the members than they could secure at Scitu- 
ate. Those wishing the change made application to the General Court 
of the Colony and were granted a tract at the present Barnstable. The 
grant was made June 4, 1639, to Joseph Hull. Thomas Dimock and their as- 
sociates to erect a plantation or to^vn at or about a place called by the 
Indians "Mattacheese," which seems to have embraced the present Barn- 
stable. Lothrop 's congregation first went there Oct. 11, 1639, among his 
followers being Anthony Annable, Henry Bourne, Thomas Dimock, "Wil- 
liam Crocker, Samuel Fuller, Samuel Hinckley, Robert Linnell, Richard 
Lombard and George Lewis. Roger Goodspeed is not mentioned as one

in Kent County. 


of Lothrop's congregation; he seems to have gone independently to 
Barnstable from Plymouth, Scituate, Yarmouth or Boston. 

Roger was a yeoman, planter, or farmer. There is nothing to show 
that he or any other Goodspeed was ever knighted, or was entitled to a 
coat-of-arms, crest, motto, etc. In the conveyance of land by Thomas 
Allyn to Roger Goodspeed in 1665 (see elsewhere), it is stated that the 
latter held his land, "in free and common soccage and not in capite or by 
knight service, by the rents and services thereof due and of right ac- 
customed," etc., and held it in the same way "as of the King's manor in 
East Greenwich, Kent County, Eng." The revenues of the manor of 
East Greenwich went into the pockets of the King and not into those of 
some nobleman. There was no better title to lands for the yeomanry. 
Roger thus held his land in the Colony and not by knight service; he 
therefore had not been knighted, nor had he inherited the title or pur- 
chased it. A thorough examination of the English books on peerage fails 
to reveal the name Goodspeed. To those of our great family who will re- 
gard this as a serious social blow, the author of this volume extends his 
profound pity, sympathy and commiseration. 

In England at this time the traffic in coats of arms was so extensive 
and so easily effected that brokers made a profitable business of such ex- 
changes and quite often kept on hand a large and lurid assortment from 
those of doubtful origin and value worth a few pounds to those of un- 
questioned authenticity, dignity and power worth a small fortune. A 
considerable number had been bestowed by the sovereign as a reward 
for opportune menial service. Some were fictitious or fraudulent. Some 
were even ludicrous in their pretentions. Thus the honor and halo usu- 
ally thought to accompany all coats of arms may at least be questionable. 
On the other hand the undoubted respectability and sterling qualities of 
the English yeomanry may be considered in democratic America as far 
superior to a coat of arms thus bought and unearned and as the equiva- 
lent of one actually bestowed for important and distinguished service on 
a direct ancestor. 

There were four ranks in England : Gentlemen, Citizens, Yeomen and 
Laborers. Gentlemen were knights and esquires both of which classes 
bore coats of arms easily to be had for the money. Esquires were regarded 
as gentlemen by birth ; they were also called Master or Mister. Citizens 
were freemen, were entitled to vote, could sit in parliament, become bur- 
gesses, and were a strong class. "Yeomen were free born men who from 
their own land had an annual income of not less than six pounds perhaps 
$150 of our present money. Most of them were thriving farmers. Now 
and then they climbed to places vacated by decayed gentlefolk and edu- 
cated their sons. They usually fought on foot, but their bravery made 


them a chief dependence of the king. They were addressed by their 
Christian names and were spoken of as 'Goodman' this or that. In legal 
instruments they were described by their class title as 'John Smith, yeo- 
man' " — (Dexter). The homes of the yeomanry had several rooms, were 
thatched with reeds, had feather beds, sheets, pillows and pewter vessels 
at the table instead of wooden ones. Forks had not made their appear- 
ance by 1600; people ate with knives, fingers and napkins. Such was 
no doubt the home of Roger and Alice. 

In Plymouth Colony no man below the citizen class was allowed to 
use the title of Master and none below his wife that of Mistress. The 
Governor, Deputy Governor, magistrates, their assistants, ministers, 
church elders, school masters, commissioned officers of the militia, men 
of wealth, "or men connected with the families of the gentry or nobil- 
ity," could alone be called IMaster. Mr. Otis* says that this rule was rig- 
idly enforced in early times in the Colony. In all lists of names the highest 
ranks were mentioned first and then on down in all cases. Roger was 
called Goodman Goodspeed ; he was not entitled to the rank of Master, 
nor his wife to the rank of Mistress. 

The land originally assigned to Roger constituted a considerable por- 
tion of the eastern part of the present village of Barnstable, the county 
seat. The two lots assigned to him embraced about eight acres. In 
1640, at which time the proprietary lands were probably assigned, the 
following rules of division were adopted by the proprietors: "1. One- 
third of the land to every house lot equally ; 2. One-third to the number 
of names that are immovable; 3. One-third according to men's estates." 
This language seems to mean that one-third of all the land went to the 
proprietors equally; one-third to men who established homes and became 
permanent residents; and one third to the classes or estates according 
to which the proprietors belonged. By the latter gentlemen received 
more than yeomen. In addition to his two lots, Roger no doubt received 
a portion of the salt marsh to the northward. English grass did not 
thrive, and the settlers were forced to use that growing on the salt 
marshes ; cattle liked it — could be fattened on it. This grass is ex- 
tensively used to this day. The boundaries of his two lots were probably 
as follows : On the west by the present road running north and south 
past the old well near the state road at the entrance to Bow Lane ; on the

ftorth by a line taking in the present northern cemetery hill; on the 
east by a line about fifteen rods east of the custom house; and on the 
south by the road running east and west and projecting on the south into 
Bow Lane. The present Masonic hall, schoolhousCj cemeteries and meet- 
inghouse stand on his lot in common, and the customhouse and a niun- 
ber of residences stand on his house lot. The old well about half way 
down Bow Lane may have been dug and first used by Roger. 

"These presents witnesseth that I Mary Hallet now Living in Barn- 
stable do freely and absolutely give unto my son in Law John Hadde- 
way that parcel of Land which I am possessed of, which hath been com- 
monly called Goodspeed's Hill, bounded on ye Highway on ye one side & 
that Swamp that is on that side adjoining to James Lewis his land and 
to ye aforesaid Land on the other and ye aforesaid Swamp to be John 
Haddeways given as the other Land is bounded on ye Southernmost part 
of ye garden yt ye sd John Haddeway hath fenced in to ye place where 
Roger Goodspeeds old house stood by ye Highway side the which I 
do give All my right title, &c. March 31, 1659. Mary Hallet." 

It must be inferred from the above language that Roger built two 
houses at what is now Barnstable village. The "old house" is spoken 
of in 1659 in the past tense; it is therefore clear that it had been torn 
down or removed before that date. Then the road did not lead eastward 
up the hill past the meeting-house, nor was there a road at the present 
Bow-Lane. The road ran along the extreme southern line of Roger's 
house lot and then turned northward and ran along the eastern line about 
fifteen rods east of the present custom house. As the "old house" stood 
by this highway, it must have been located on the extreme south side or 
extreme east side of the house lot, approximately seventy-five yards 
either south or east of the site of the second house. 

The present Meetinghouse Hill was first called Goodspeed's Hill be 
cause Roger first owned it. The present street leading eastward up 
the hill divided his property, the portion to the north being his lot in com- 
mon and the portion to the south his house lot. His second house was situ- 
ated at the foot of the hill and a rod or two northeast of the present Bow 
Lane and on its curve about two-thirds of the way around from the west. 
At that time the present state road leading eastward up the hill was a 
deep gully cutting in to the west side of the hill or may even not 
have been a gully. Although the hill is considerable of an eminence yet, 
it must have been at least thirty feet higher then than at present and 
considerably larger, as the grading and cultivation of 267 years must 
have greatly reduced it. At the foot of the hill a stream which drained 
Lewis' swamp ran northward across the present state road. What sort 
of a house he first built is not known, but was probably a temporary 


palisade or log stnicture to be used until he could build a better one. 
When he built his second house is not kno^vTi exactly, but was probably 
about 1647; it is known to have been standing in 1653 before which 
date he had sold out and moved to the present Marstons Mills, then called 
by the Indian name Jlisteake. This hoiise is shown in the cuts used in 
this volume; when torn down about 1864 the framework was as sound 
as when put up about 217 years before. Cuts herein also show the in- 
terior arrangement of the house. It was called a double tenement, but 
may first have been only a single tenement; that is, the eastern half 
may have been built first. The double house must have been much 
larger than Roger needed or could use. No doubt changes were made 
by later owners. This old house was long a land-mark in the village. 
In 1654 "Widow Mary Hallett owmed the Good.speed lots. After 1660 the 
hill began to be called Cobb's Hill and after 1725 Meetinghouse Hill. 
It is thus known at present. 

Roger's second house was admirably situated to protect it from the 
north and west winds of the ocean. The house was built snugly against 
the southern side of the hill which then rose abruptly so that a person 
stepping out of the north door had to mount a few steps before climbing 
the hill. After stepping out he could reach back and place his hand on 
the roof, which extended low on the north side. A spur of the hill, since re- 
moved, a little to the westward protected the house from western winds. 
No doubt trees grew on the hill affording still further protection. The 
house had a southern and eastern exposure. But the amount of arable 
land held by Roger was insufficient for him and his growing boys, and no 
doubt he went to Misteake as soon as that tract had been secured from 
the Indians in order to better himself in this respect. 

In 1647, when it was decided to fence all the cultivated land of the 
settlement in one "general field," every land owner Avas rquired to build 
his proportionate share of such fence. As each owner was requird to 
build two and one-fourth rods of fence for each acre of his land thus to 
be enclosed, the quantity of land held by each within the enclosure is re- 
vealed by the number of rods he was required to build. As Roger was 
required to build 21% rods, he must have o-ivned 8 3-5 acres within the 
enclosure. No stock were to be allowed within this general field unless 

The proprietors and their children had the first chance at the town 
lands. Tracts offered for sale were first tendered to the proprietors, but 
if not bought by them within a year were sold to any one. A pur- 
chaser had the same rights as one of the original proprietors. Un- 
married men were not admitted as townsmen until they were twenty-four 
years old; they then could share in the town lands and had full voting 


power according to their classes or estates. Roger was duly admitted as 
a freeman June 5, 1651, and the same year served as grand juryman. 

On May 17, 1648, there was concluded a contract between the whites 
of Barnstable led by Capt. Miles Standish and the Indians led by Paup- 
munnucks and his brother and associates, to the effect that all the Indian 
lands within the precincts of Barnstable lying on the South Sea, bounded 
eastward by the lands of Yanno, westward by a line extending north and 
south a short distance west of Herring brook (Goodspeed's River), north- 
ward by the lands of Nepoyetums and Seagunucks, and southward by 
the South Sea should be conveyed to the whites upon the payment of 
two brass kettles, one bushel of Indian corn and one half enough fence 
to enclose thirty acres reserved from the tract for the use of Paupmun- 
nucks and located on the east bank of Herring river a short distance 
south of the present Marstons Mills, or Misteake as it was then called. 
This purchase opened to the whites another large tract and they soon 
began to locate thereon, coming from Scituate, Plymouth, Sandwich, Yar- 
mouth, Barnstable and other places. As Roger was one of the first, if 
not the first, to locate thereon, it is probable that he selected his land 
and perhaps erected his house at Misteake the latter part of 1648 and 
certainly as early as 1649. He chose a tract on the east side of Herring 
river immediately north of the thirty acre reservation of Paupmunnucks 
at Cotaehesett Neck, and as he was the only white man to locate on that 
stream for a number of years, it began to be called "Goodspeed's River" 
and an island therein "Goodspeed's Island." This "river" is now mere- 
ly a brook or creek with a width of from five to eight yards. As it 
drains several fresh water lakes farther up, it no doubt in early times 
was much larger than at present. Upon leaving the present site of 
Barnstable village, Roger very probably "laid down to common" his 
lot in common there and sold his house lot to Mrs. Hallett. If he "laid 
down to common" any land, he received another tract in its place as 
was the custom. Mr. Otis thought that Roger was the first white man to 
locate at Misteake. 

So much liberty was given to persons wishing land tracts and so much 
confusion resulted from imperfect descriptions of boundaries, that in 
1651 at a full town meeting of the inhabitants it was voted to "declare 
and record" the lands of each man in the town. Under this action the 
following record concerning the lands owned by Roger was made : 

"The Record of ye Land of Roger Goodspeed In ye year 1653. 

"1. Six acres of Upland be it More or Less bounded Southerly by 
Paupmunacke Land Easterly Into ye woods & Westerly by ye River 
Commonly called ye Oyster River. 


"2. A neck of Upland Lying Northerly from ye aforesaid Six acres 
Containing 15 acres be it More or Less bounded "Westerly by ye aforesd 
River Easterly Into ye woods. 

"3. A parcel of Meadow Containing six acres be it Jlore or lass bound- 
ed Southerly by Jonathan Hatches bounded Westerly by ye Sd River 
Running up to ye head of ye River where ye Upland Comes to ye River 
the sd Upland being by ye Indians Commonly Called Misteake." 

Later the following was added to this entry: 

"The aforesaid Roger Goodspeed did personally appear & acknowl- 
edge his resigning up all his Right title and Interest unto ye above sd 
six acres unto ye Town ye 29 of January 1667." 

The first mentioned six acre tract and the fifteen acre tract were 
together on the east bank of Goodspeed 's river and a short distance south 
of the present village of Marstons Mills. It was upon this tract that 
Roger built his first house at the new home. A short distance north of 
this land was the second six acre tract mentioned above extending north- 
ward to the lands called "Misteake" by the Indians. His second house 
at Misteake was built on the tract he bought on the "ponds" of Thomas 
Allen in 1665, and it was this house and six acres there which he re- 
served when he conveyed the bulk of his property to his two sons John 
and Ebenezer. In 1667 the town granted him sixteen acres adjoining 
his house lot. "While in his first house at Misteake, hLs nearest neighbor 
was the famous Sachem Paupmunnucks of Massapee. No doubt Roger 
and his boys could speak well the language of the Indians. 

The following is taken from the records at Barnstable: "John Cooper 
being in hand paid and fully Satisfied by Roger Goodspeed hath by these 
presents fully and absolutely sold, given and granted from him and his 
unto ye sd Roger Goodspeed & his for ever, all that Little Neck aforesd 
butting Southerly Into ye pond with ye eight Acres of Upland against 
it bounded as aforesd this 9th of May 1659." The total was about six- 
teen acres. 

The Barnstable Town records show that the following additional tract 
had been granted to and was owned by Roger after the Town's examina- 
tion January 29, 1667: "The lands of Roger Goodspeed, fifteen acres be it 
More or Less boimded Easterly by ye New Path that leads from his house 
to ye Indian field, Southerly by ye South Side of a white wood Swamp 
& partly by a line Running thence by a green pine tree to ye River 
& bounded "Westerly & Northerly by his own land." 

At a town meeting July 15, 1670, John Thompson was given the 



"right of way over Goodspeed's River to his marsh" across the lands 
claimed by Roger, providing he "would make good any damage to ye 
sd Roger Goodspeed" . . "and it is also agreed by ye sd town that 
ye sd Roger Goodspeed shall have and enjoy ye rest of ye land which 
he hath now fenced in for conveniency to safeguard his marsh to him his 
heirs and assigns forever."

Roger was indiscreet enough on one occasion to get himself into 
rather serious trouble, as shown by the following complaint and pro- 
ceedings on the records of Plymouth Colony: 

"John Jenkins, of Barnstable, complained against Roger Goodspeed 
in an action of defamation to the damage of fifty pounds, in his charg- 
ing of the said complainant to be a Iyer, and that he had stolen his kidd, 
biding all the people there to take notice thereof; this being on a lec- 
ter day, in September last, in the publicke meeting house there, before 
sundry people. 

"The jury find for the plaintiff twenty pounds damage, and the coste 
of the suite, or an acknowledgement to the satisfaction of the Court, and 
the coste of the suite." 

Roger accepted the alternative as shown by the following entry taken 
from the same record : 


"These are to certify whom it may concern, That what words passed 
from mee, Roger Goodspeed, att the meeting house att Barnstable con- 
cerning John Jenkins, his stealing my kidd and lying, were rash, unad- 
vised and inconsiderate words ; and upon due consideration I see I had 
noe cause soe to say, and ame sorry for soe saying, and desire him to 
passe it by. Roger Goodspeed x his mark." 

A marginal note in the records states, "This was ended by acknowl- 
edgement." It may not be out of place in this connection to say that 
Roger exhibited more courage than discretion. It required considerable 
"nerve" to openly charge a neighbor with theft and falsehood on a lec- 
ture day before all the people. He must have been both courageous and 


physically strong or Jenkins would then and there have resented the 
impeachment. The mistake of Roger was in publicly making the accu- 
sation before he had collected the evidence to sustain his charge. One 
thing was certain : The kid was gone. There was no mistake about that. 
And Roger was the loser. The kid was no doubt a pet, and its loss made 
him indignant. Besides, being himself a highly moral and upright man 
and an earnest and exemplary Christian, he hated a thief and liar, and 
in the suddenness of his righteous wrath he made the charge, as most 
strictly honorable men usually do, before he had weighed the conse- 
quences, in fact without regard to the consequences. But an English 
court is destitute of sentiment; it took no note of the thief, probably 
did not search for him. No doubt the town gossips and the ccfurt tip- 
staves were in high feather. Poor Roger, like Old Tray, was in bad com- 
pany. He lost his kid, had to pay costs of suit, and escaped a heavy fine 
only by dextrous dodging. Notice that he did not withdraw the charge. 
He said under compulsion only that his words were "rash, unadvised and 
inconsiderate," and that he "had no cause soe to say," all of which was 
very true, because he had unwittingly made the charge before collecting 
his evidence and was thus "rash" and without "cause." He may 
have been right as to the guilty person. But after all the kid was prob- 
ably the keenest sufferer. Ten to one it did not relish the change from 
tidbits to oyster shells, and possibly its hide was soon transformed into 
gloves by the lucky thief. Its melancholy fate is unknown. Requiescat 
in pace. 

On another occasion he became involved in trouble with his church. In 
1672 his name was dropped from membership, but in 1679 he was rein- 
stated at his own request. The charge against him was that he had 
stated publicly that John Thompson while in Boston had declared in 
effect that Barnstable could not get along without him — Thompson. As 
Roger did not withdraw the statement, his name was dropped from the 
church rolls. Of course a remark like that would be forgotten now in a 
day. But those were strict times in religious matters. 

The following is an exact transcript from the Barnstable records; 
it also appears in the Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. VIII, page 43-44: 
"Roger Goodspeed and Allis Layton married December 1641. His son 
Nathaniell, borne October 6, 1642. John, the middst of June 1645. His 
daughter ]\Iary, the latter end of July 1647. Benjamine, the sixt of 
May, 1649. Ruth, the 10th of Aprill, 1652. Ebenezer, latter end of Decem- 
ber, 1655. Elizabeth, in May, 1658." Of course this record must have 
been made after the birth of the youngest child, or after 1658. It was 
therefore copied from several previous entries, or was then prepared by 
Roger or Alice and handed to the clerk to be entered. The latter step is 


the more likely, though it would seem that if Alice had anything to do 
with this proceeding she would have given the exact dates of births. She 
had worked hard to rear her little brood, was growing old, and may not 
have recollected the exact dates, in the absence of the family bible, when 
the above s^tatement was prepared and presented for record. The record 
«hows that Nathaniel was baptised Jany. 14, 1643 ; John, June 15, 1645 ; 
Mary, Sept. 12, 1647; Benjamin, May 19, 1650; Ruth, May 15, 1653. 

(2a) Nathaniel (2) bom Oct. 6, 1642. 

(2b) John (3) born June, 1645. 

(2c) Mary (4) born July, 1647. 

(2d) Benjamin (5) born May 6, 1649. 

(2e) Ruth (6) born April 10, 1652. 

(2f) Ebenezer (7) born December, 1655. 

(2g) Elizabeth (8) born May, 1658. 

After 1677 there were two Widow Goodspeeds — those of Nathaniel 
and Benjamin, sons of Roger, both of whom had died soon after their 
marriages. What a gloom the death of these sons must have cast upon 
the old age of Roger and Alice ! And what a loss it was to the two young 
widows each left with one or two little children ! 

The following is taken from the Plymouth Colony Records under date 
of 1651-52: "Whereas, John Willis, of Duxborrow, complained that his 
daughter in law, Rebeekah Palmer, was molested and hindered pform- 
ing faithfull .service unto her Mr. viz Samuel ]Mayo of Barnstable by 
the wife of Trustrum Hull of Barnstable aforesaid; the Court have sent 
downe order by Roger Goodspeed grandjuryman of Barnstable aforesaid 
to warn the wife of ye said Trustrum Hull to desist from such practices 
and further, as shee or any other that shall soe doe will answere it at 
thaire perill." 

In the inventory of the estate of Nicholas Davis appraised July 13, 
1673, the following item appears: "Item, — By 9 Cattle and about 
twenty sheep in the Custodore (custody) of Goodman Goodspeed, all which 
hee was possessed of since the death of Nicholas Davis which hee Re- 
fuseth to deliver." Davis had probably owed Roger who took this 
method of getting his dues from the executor. 

Indian names for localities on Cape Cod were as follows, according 
to Mr. Otis: Barnstable was Chequoeket; Falmouth, Succanessett ; Sand- 
wich, Shawme; Yarmouth, Mattacheese or Nobscuset; Plymouth, Pa- 
tuxet or Acconiac or Apaiim; Rehoboth, Seekonk; Chatham, Monamoit; 
Osterville, Cotachesett; Rochester, Sippeean; Weymouth, Wessaguscus; 
Chelsea, Winnismmet; Bump's (Bumpas) river, Skonkonet. Mashpe,

the same as Massapee, has the same origin as Missisippi, meaning "Great

The following is an exact copy of the legal instrument by which 
Roger conveyed to his two surviving sons, John and Ebenezer, practically 
all of his estate upon the conditions named therein :

The mark made by Roger to this instrument was a rude R. As he 
was at this time, so far as known, in the enjoyment of good health, this 
would seem to imply that he could not write his name. 

"The Last will and testament of Roger Goodspeed of Barnstable in

"Signed sealed and declared in the prjence of

The following is from the Plymouth Colony Records under date of 
June, 1685: "June Court. The Court orders, that Mr Barnabas Loth- 
ropp do give Mr Jonathan Russell his oath to Rogger Goodspeeds will." 

Thus Roger died some time in April, 1685 ; the date of his birth is not 
knovm, consequently neither is his age.

(2a) NATHANIEL (2). 

NATHANIEL (2), eldest son and child of Roger and Alice, died in 
May, 1670. The cause of death is unknown. In November, 
1666, he married Elizabeth,* daughter of John and Joanna 
(Hull) Bursley, and by her had two children; both lived and reared 
families — 

(3a) Mary (9) born Feb. 18, 1668. 
(3b) Nathaniel (10) born 1669 or 1670. 

His father (Roger (1)) gave him six acres at Misteake, five of up- 
land and one of marsh. Upon this land he built a house and occupied the 
same until his untimely death. He was a farmer, and the inventory 
of his estate shows the character and extent of his belongings. He 
lived the first five or six years of his life at Barnstable, and the rest at 
Misteake. The Indians were his companions, and no doubt he was a 
skillful hunter. Soon after attaining his majority he became a freeman 
and was listed for military service. 

Upon the death of her husband Nathaniel (2), his widow Elizabeth 
was made administratrix, as shown by the following extract from the 
Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. V, pp. 42, 43: 

*Johii Bursley married Joanna Hull, daughter of Eev. Joseph, Nov. 28, 1639; had 
(1) Mary, born 1643; (2) Joanna, born 1646; (3) Elizabeth, born 1649; (4) John, 
born 1652; (5) Temperance. Of this family Elizabeth married Nathaniel (2) and 
John married 1673 Elizabeth Howland and had Jabez, born 1681, who married Hannah 

and had Benjamin bom 1706, who married, first, 1735, Joanna Cannon and 

had Jabez born 1735; Martha born 1740; Elizabeth born 1744; and married, second, 
1744, Mary (45). John and Elizabeth (Howland) Bursley also had Joseph born 1687, 
married 1712 Sarah Crocker and had Joseph born 1713 who married Bethiah Fuller 
and had John, Bethiah, Lemuel, Sarah, born 1748, Abigail and Joseph. Joseph and 
Sarah (Crocker) Bursley also had Mercy born July 10, 1721, who married May 12, 
1757, John (48). Philemon (109) who married a Sarah Bursley Nov. 30, 1768, 
probably married one of the two Sarahs, born in 1748 — either the daughter of Benjamin 
and Mary (Goodspeed) Bursley, or the daughter of Joseph and Bethiah (Fuller) Burs- 
ley, the births of both Sarahs occurring in that year, 1748. 


"Mr Hinckley was appointed by the Court to take seeuritie in the 
Courts behalfe, of Elizabeth Goodspeed, widdow, relict of Nathaniel 
Goodspeed late deceased, for her administration on his estate. This 
Court doth order, that the two children of said Nathaniel Goodspeed shall 
have, each of them, forty shillings reserved for them out of the estate 
of the said Goodspeed, and delivered to them bj' the aforesaid admin- 
istrator, or her order, when they come to be of age." 

This was ordered by the Court at Plymouth July 5, 1670. On July 
2, 1670, Thomas Hinckley attested that "Roger Goodspeed the father of 
the aforesaid Nathaniel acknowledged before mee that hee gave to his 
son the said Nathaniel five acres of upland and one acre of Marsh which 
was in his possession before his decease." The following is the inven- 
tory of Nathaniel's estate:

To this inventory was appended the following attestation: "Eliza- 
beth the Relict of the aforesaid Nathaniel Goodspeed made oathe to the 
truth of this inventory the 2d of July, 1670. Attest, Thomas Hinckley." 
No doubt Elizabeth supported as best she could herself and her two lit- 
tle children until she met and married an excellent man. Increase Clapp,* 
on October 3, 1675. This marriage seems to have been solemnized at 
West Barnstable where Mr Clapp lived. Increase and Elizabeth after- 
ward moved to Rochester, Mass., where they probably passed the re- 
mainder of their lives. 

(3a) Mary (9) married Ensign John Hinckley t as shown by the fol- 
lowing extract taken from the Sandwich records: "Serjant John Hinck- 
ley and Mary Goodspeed were married 24 November, 1697, by J. T. 
Howes." She was his second wife and was within about three months 
of being thirty years old. She bore him three children : 1, Mary ; 2, Abi- 
gail; 3, Mercy. Ensign John died December 7, 1709, leaving his estate 
to his wife Mary and to his children. His daughter Mercy died in 1718, 
and named her sisters Abigail and Mary as still living. Mary daugh- 
ter of Ensign John and Mary, married Nov. 9, 1721, Samuel Jenkins and 
had 1, Experience, born 1722; 2, Mary, born 1725; 3, Samuel, born 1727; 
4, Nathaniel, born 1728 ; 5, Simeon, born 1733 ; 6, Lot, born 1738. Mercy 
and Abigail probably died immarried. In the Hamlin Genealogy it is 
stated that the Mary Goodspeed above who married Ensign John was 
Mary (Davis) Goodspeed, widow of Benjamin Goodspeed. If so, as 
that Mary was born in 1653, she was past forty-four years old at the 
time of her marriage in 1697, and yet bore him three children as above 
named, at least one of whom was no doubt born after she was fifty years 
old. It is much more probable that the Mary who married Ensign John 
was the daughter of Nathaniel (2) deceased. This Mary was past twen- 
ty-nine years old in 1697. Both she and Ensign John lived at West 
Barnstable. Mary had been reared there by her step-father Increase 

•Increase Clapp wag the son of Thomas, son of Richard, of Dorchester, Bng. 
Increase went to West Barnstable about 1661-2 and bought land of the Rowleys. He 
lived on the south side of the road a little east of Dexter lane. About the year 1700, 
perhaps a little earlier, he moved to Rochester, Mass. 

fEnsign John was the son of Samuel and Sarah Hinckley, and the brother of 
Thomas, Governor of Plymouth Colony, and also the brother of Samuel who married 
Mary (4) daughter of Roger (1). Ensign John's first wife was Bethiah Lothrop, who 
died July 10, 1697. By her he had Sarah, Samuel, Bethiah, Hannah, Jonathan, Ichabod 
bom 1680, Gershom. 


(3b) Nathaniel (10) married Sarah King,* as shown by the following 
excerpt from the records at Rochester, ilass. : "Nathaniel Goodspeed 
of Rochester and Sarah King of Scittuate was married December ye 21, 
1705." Sarah was probably the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth King 
of Scituate, Mass. The following extract is taken verbatim from the old 
record at Rochester: "Stephen Goodspeed the son of Nathaniel Good- 
speed and of his wife Sarah was borne the 17th Day of September in 
the year 1706 of Nathaniel Goodspeed their son was borne the 8th day 
of March in ye year 1707/8 Marey Goodspeed their Daughter was borne 
ye 27th Day of March in ye year 1710 John Goodspeed their son was 
born ye 12th Day of august in the year 1713." In other words this rec- 
ord is as follows: 

(4a) Stephen (32) born Sept. 17, 1706. 

(4b) Nathaniel (33) born March 8, 1708. 

(4c) Mary (34) born ilarch 27, 1710, no information. 

(4d) John (35) born Aug. 12, 1713. 

No doubt the four children were born at Rochester. The three sons 
reached maturity, but the daughter probably did not. The following 
from the Rochester record shows whom Stephen (32) married: "Stephen 
Goodspeed & Bethiah Wooding married ye 1st of March 1730/31, Rd 
Ruggles." The date was March 1, 1731, and the marriage was celebrated 
by Rev. Timothy Ruggles, the famous minister of that day. 

Nathaniel (10), in right of his father, was entitled to his pro rata 
quantity of the land shares distributed at Barnstable. He reached his 
majority about 1691. On January 14, 1691, in a division of the "Com- 
mon Meadow," he was awarded by the committee two parts, his Uncle 
Ebenezer four parts, and his Uncle John five parts. In another division 
of the common meadow and marsh on January 12, 1697, Nathan- 
iel received two parts, Ebenezer four parts and John five parts. In an 
important division of 6,000 shares at Barnstable in 1703, the Goodspeeds 
were awarded shares as follows: Ebenezer (7) 50%; John (3) 511/2; 
Benjamin (19) 121/2; Nathaniel (10) 1514; John Jr (13) 18. In 1708 

*TLiomas King, Sr., had by his wife Sarah, 1. Ehoda, born 1639; 2. George, bom 
1642; 3. Thomas, Jr., born 1645; 4. Daniel, born 1647; 5. Sarah, born 1650; 6. John, 
born 1652. Deacon Thomas, Jr. (1645) married Elizabeth Clapp January, 1669, and 
had 1. Sarah, bom 1669; 2. Thomas, born 1671; 3. Jean, bom 1673; 4. Daniel, bora 
1675; 5. John, bora 1677; 6. Mereey, born 1678; 7. Ichabod, bom 1680; 8. George, 
bora 1682; 9. Anna, born 1684. Of this family, Sarah, bom 1669, probably married 
Nathaniel (10) as above stated. Her brother Deacon George married Deborah Briggs 
in 1710, and had Deborah, bom about 1711, Ehoda, Lydia and Sarah. Probably this 
Deborah Briggs was the aunt of the Deborah Briggs who married Nathaniel (33). 


Nathaniel sold his last mentioned shares to Capt Joseph Crocker, who 
after that date answered to his right. One of Nathaniel's lots was de- 
scribed as follows: "Lott Bounded by the 57th up to Skonkamet Lotts 
Bounded northerly about 57 Rod westerly by Sd Lotts to a stake No 
LVIII thence Sott down one about 170 Rods to a stake No LVIII then 
sott e & by s 30 Rods to the N W Corner of sd 57th Lott." That de- 
scription seems to have been satisfactory in those days, but it may safely 
be presumed that lawyers of the present day would have high and profit- 
able sport over such a deed. It would seem from the records that Deacon 
Chipman had some claim on the last mentioned lot. 

On March 10, 1712, Nathaniel (10) for £24 bought of James Winslow 
at Rochester, a small tract of land, it being, in the language of "Winslow, 
"all that my one half of ye Seventh Lot of Salt meadow and meadowish 
Ground that I have in ye Town ship of Rochester near Increase Clapp's 
meadow." This seems to have been the first tract owned by Nathaniel 
(10) at Rochester. On July 7, 1714, he bought of John Blackmer, Jr., 
of Rochester for £53, forty acres adjoining the Blackmer place. On 
August 19, 1714, there was laid out to Nathaniel ten acres a part of the 
200 laid out to Barnabas Lothrop "by the proprietors of Sippecan or 
Rochester." On March 8, 1715, there were laid out to him forty acres 
"on the head of Cohasset Creek", half of the eighty acres of Barnabas 
Lothrop 's share "as one of the proprietors of Sippecan or Rochester." 

On April 5, 1716, Increase Clapp of Rochester sold to Nathaniel (10) 
for £2 a tract the following being the language in the conveyance: "In 
Consideration of ye Summ of two Pounds to me in hand Paid by Nathan- 
iel Goodspeed of Rochester aforesd and other good Causes me thereunto 
moving With which I acknowledge my Self Satisfied and Contented have 
given, granted, &c, all that my ten acres of Land being Part of ye Grant 
of two hundred acres belonging to Barnabas Lothrop 's shares at first 
that I have in the Township of Rochester aforesaid." This conveyance 
would seem to indicate unusually kind treatment for a father-in-law and 
merits special notice. "When Mary and Nathaniel were eight and six 
years old respectively, their mother Elizabeth, as before stated, had mar- 
ried Increase Clapp and the two children had grown up with the new 
family at "West Barnstable. "When Increase moved to Rochester about 
1700, Nathaniel went along to be near his mother, while Mary remained 
at "West Barnstable, having married Ensign John Hinckley. Later Na- 
thaniel married and settled near Mr Clapp. 

In October, 1718, Nathaniel (10) sold to John Briggs* for £24 a tract 

*Tlii3 John Briggs was no doubt a near relative of Deborah Briggs who married 
Nathaniel (33). 


of salt meadow at Great Neck; Sarali wife of Nathaniel is named in the 
conveyance. In 1724 Nathaniel "yeoman" conveyed to Nathan Landers 
fifty acres "of Upland with Swampy land intermixed on the head of Co- 
hasset Creek near the Southerly side of the Coimty Road leading to 
Sandwich from sd Rochester." On April 13, 1733, Nathaniel of Roches- 
ter, for the consideration of £200, sold to John (35) his son, cordwainer, 
also of Rochester, "My Dwelling House & Homestead which I live on 
in Rochester afoesd Containing by Estimation Fifty acres of Land in 
the "Whole Containing that Fourty acres of Land which I bought of 
John Blackmer Jr of sd Rochester . . . and ten acres more being 
the ten acres of addition or Granted Land laid out adjoining to the sd 
fourty acres in the Right of Barnabas Lothrop at lirst and laid out to 
mee the sd Nathaniel Goodspeed Reference being had to the Proprietors 
Records of sd Rochester for particulars." Nathaniel signed this con- 
veyance with his mark. He thus sold to his youngest sou his homestead, 
and may have lived afterward with him imtil death. How long he lived 
thereafter is not known. His wife Sarah probably died before the date 
of this conveyance. 

(4a) Stephen (32), after his marriage to Bethiah Wooding in 1731, 
remained at Rochester several years. The following appears of record 
there: "Recorded the Births of Stephen Goodspeeds Children by Bethiah 
his wife. Elizabeth Goodspeed their daughter was born October 10th 
1731. Sarah Goodspeed their daughter was born May ye 14th 1734." 
No other children appear to have been born to them at Rochester. If a 
child was born between Elizabeth and Sarah, it no doubt died in in- 

On ilarch 3, 1736, Stephen and Bethiah, for a consideration of £15, 
sold to Seth Barnes of Plymouth "All our Right Title Share or Interest 
in Upland Swamp and ileadow Ground lying and being in ye Township 
of Rochester in ye county aforesd which descended to us from our Hon- 
our 'd Father Mr Peter Wooden of sd Rochester lately deseased, to have 
and to Hold," etc. To this instrument Stephen signed his name, but 
Bethiah made her mark. This extract shows the paternity of Bethiah 
— Peter Wooden, also written Wooding in the records, perhaps changed 
to Wood after another generation or two. The extract also shows when 
Stephen sold out and left Rochester. 

It has not been learned with absolute certainty what other children 
except Stephen (76) were born to Stephen and Bethiah after they left 
Rochester. They seem first to have moved to Cumberland, then in ]Mass., 
but now in Rhode Island, and there their son Stephen was born. They 
probably moved to Scituate, R. I., about 1752 or 1753. Several of their 
other children were born where they lived between 1737 and 1753, but 
that location has not been learned. At that time what is now the town 


of Cumberland, R. I., was a part of Attleboro town, Mass., and at Attle- 
boro the birth of Stephen (76) is duly recorded, but those of the other 
children are not. Neither does the old church record there or at South 
Attleboro reveal their names and births. The records of the "Old Blue 
Church" in Cumberland town are missing; their births or baptisms may 
have been recorded there. Some old record may yet disclose this missing 
link. Inasmuch as no others of the name, so far as known, lived at Sci- 
tuate, R. I., afterward ; as several of the name appeared there after 1753, 
grew up there, married there, owned land at Scituate or Foster near by, 
together with numerous other corroborative circumstances, such as tra- 
ditions of descendants, it is confidently believed that to Stephen and Be- 
thiah the following children, and perhaps others, were born : 

(5a) Elizabeth (74) bom Oct. 10, 1731. 

(5b) Sarah (75) born May 14, 1734. 

(5c) Stephen (76) born July 25, 1738, see Section I, Part II. 

(5d) Nathaniel (77) born about 1741, see Section II, Part II. 

(5e) John (78) born about 1743, no information. 

(5f) Thankful (79) born about 1746. 

(5g) Hosea (80) born about 1750, see Section III, Part II. 

(5h) Gideon (81) born about 1755, see Section IV, Part II. 

(5i) Isaac (82) born about 1758, see Section V, Part II. 

(5a) Elizabeth (74) probably married Nathan Olney about 1753 and 
had Peter bom 1754, Jesse born 1755, "William born 1756, Stephen born 
1758, Enos born about 1760, Keziah bom about 1763, Nathaniel bom 
1765, Bethiah bom about 1767, ZJlpha born 1770, Nathan born about 
1773. She lived for some time at Stillwater, Saratoga County, N. Y., 
where she moved about 1765 ; no further information, 

(5b) Sarah (75) probably married Jedediah Irish* in Rhode Island and 
had Jedediah, Benjamin, Isaac, John, Joseph, Benjamin again and no 
doubt several daughters; no further information. 

(5f ) Thankful (79) probably married Jedediah Irish* ; if so was hia 
second wife, her sister Sarah (75) having been his first wife. 

*The names of all the children of Stephen and Bethiah not having been learned, it 
cannot be stated with certainty that the Sarah and Thankful whom Jedediah Irish 
married were their children. The fact is clear and on record that he married two 
women having those names. The question is, Who were they? As Stephen and his 
descendants, so far as known, were the only Goodspeeds to live at Scituate and Foster, 
R. I., and as Jedediah Irish lived there, or near there, and married there, it is reason- 
able to conclude that they were the children of Stephen and Bethiah. Traditions 
strongly confirm this view. But there is considerable doubt about all the children of 
Stephen (32) and Bethiah except the first four. 


The following entry is taken from the records at Scituate, R. I. : 

"Whereas there is Several Tranchant persons Now Residing in said 
Town of Scituate which have not procured Certificates in order to keep 
ye Town Indemnified, viz, Stephen Goodspeed (eighteen others are 
named, more than half of whom afterward became useful citizens there) 
and their Families who are Supposed to be Likely to be a Town Charge 
if Care be Not Taken to prevent it and they Not Haveing gained any 
Legall Settlement Nor Complied with ye Terms of ye Law in Such 
Cases — it is therefore voted and ordered that ye Town Clerk grant fourth 
a "Warrant under ye Seal of ye Council to Warn ye said persons with 

their families to Depart ye said Town before ye Day of 

or procure Certificates to keep ye said Town Indemnified from any 
charges that May accrue by their Remaining in said Town — May 6, 1754." 

The settlers were poor, had all they could possibly do to take care of 
their own families, and therefore should be pardoned for what seems at 
the first glance to have been a selfish and inconsiderate act. Stephen 
(32) must have furnished the required certificate, because he continued 
to live there during the remainder of his life. He was poor and must 
have had a hard time rearing his family — say from 1731 to about 1760. 
It could not be learned that he owned any land there. He must have 
been a weaver, judging from the inventory of his estate. He probably 
moved to Scituate the year before he received the above summary notice. 
The following statement is spread upon the records at Scituate, R. I. : 

"Whereas Stephen Goodspeed Late of Scituate aforesd Departed 
this Life on the First day of June Last past and Died Intestate and Be- 
thiah Goodspeed Widow of the said Deceased appearing in Council 
Pray'd that She might Have Letters of administration of the personall 
Estate of her sd Deceased Husband Granted to her — Whereupon it is 
voted and ordered that Letters of administration of the personall Estate 
of the sd Stephen Goodspeed Dec'd be granted to the sd Bethiah Good-

thereof and she procured Joseph Weatherhead and Squire Bucklen both 
of sd Scituate to be her Sureties who were accepted and Bond given ac- 
cordingly and Letters of administration were granted to her as Fol- 
loweth :

"And the sd Bethiah Goodspeed Declared in Council on her Solemn 
Engagement that Shee Had put all the personall Estate of her sd Dec'd 
Husband into the above Inventory that was Come to her Hand and that 
if anything more thereof Doth hereafter appear or Come to her Knowl- 
edge She will add the Same to sd Inventory." 

This inventory indicates to what an enormous extent the Rhode Island 
currency had depreciated in purchasing power — to one-tenth approxi- 
mately. Judging by ordinary standards of value, Stephen's (32) personal 
estate was worth about $109. After his death his widow paid out in debts 
due from his estate £380 10s, or about $38 present value. The date and 
circumstances of Bethiah 's death have not been learned. 

It is claimed that Stephen (32) served in the French and Indian 
War — that he was a member of an expedition to the Lake George coun- 
try in New York; this claim has not been verified. 

(4b) Nathaniel (33) married Aug. 18, 1735, Deborah Briggs at Sci- 
tuate, Mass., they had — 

(5a) Thankful (83) born about 1737. 
(5b) Deborah (84) born about 1739. 
(5c) Abigail (85) born about 1742. 


(5d) Shear jashiib (86) born 1744, see Section VI, Part II. 
(5e) Elizabeth (87) bom about 1746. 

(of) Nathaniel (88) bom June 17, 1749, see Section VII, Part II. 
(5g) Judah (89) born about 1752, see Section VIII, Part II. 

(5a) Thankful (83) was probably born at Scituate, Mass., and no 
doubt died there in infancy; the church record there shows that she was 
baptised suddenly "being sick." 

(5b) Deborah (84) married Nov,. 3, 1760, Elias Bowker, both of Lei- 
cester, Mass., no further information. 

(5c) Abigail (85) married Dec. 3, 1761, Samuel Babbitt, of Killingly, 
Conn.; she died Sept. 14, 1762, "aged twenty years," leaving one daugh- 
ter (6a) Abigail born Sept. 8, 1762; Mr. Babbitt had another wife Bath- 
sheba in 1763. 

(5e) Elizabeth (87) married Aug. 20, 1771, Zacheas Brown at Put- 
nam Heights, Windham County, Conn., no further information. 

Nathaniel (33) seems to have moved to Scituate, Mass., in 1735 or 
1736. On Jany. 19, 1737, James Hatch, of Hanover, for a consideration of 
£50, sold to Nathaniel, "of Scituate," twenty acres in Hanover, the same 
being a part of the Hatch homestead. Previous to this time Nathaniel 
apparently did not own any land, but is spoken of in the records as a 
"mariner" residing there. On Feb., 24, 1737, Nathaniel, "of Scituate, 
mariner," bought of George King, also of Scituate, "yeoman," for a 
consideration of £200, a tract of about ninety acres in Rochester, Mass., 
being a "part of the John Randall place." On March 13, 1737, Joseph 
Burgess, for £215, sold to Nathaniel a dwelling and twenty-three acres 
in Rochester "on ye Westerly side of ye Road that leads from the mills at 
Middleborough adjoining to Lieut. Samuel Sprague's homestead." On 
March 16, 1737, Joseph Burgess, for £200, sold to Nathaniel, "of Scitu- 
ate," a tract in Rochester at a place called "Scraggy Neck," it being 
about 115 acres, "lying in ye South Purchase of Middleborough, ye same 
having formerly been owned by Jacob Thompson." It was no doubt that 
at this time — the spring of 1737 — Nathaniel moved back to Rochester. 
After this he is called a "yeoman." On June 6, 1738, he bought of Joseph 
Burgess for £102, seventeen acres, the same being a part of the Burgess 
homestead. On Aug. 7, 1738, he was compelled to mortgage the Burgess 
land to Thomas Sisson of Dartmouth for £115 10s. On July 19, 1738, Na- 
thaniel sold back to James Hatch of Hanover, for £52 10s, the tract of 
about twenty acres he had bought of him a year and a half before. Or 
did he forfeit the tract, not being able to pay for it? On Sept. 12, 1738, 
Nathaniel, "yeoman, for the consideration of £300, sold to Ithamar Combs 
of Rochester, the tract in the South Purchase of Middleboro (though 


yet in the Township of Rochester), the same being the homestead where 
Joseph Burgess formerly lived. In Aug., 1739, Nathaniel, for £300, 
bought of Samuel Lewis a house and land in Rochester (about fifty acres). 
Nathaniel in this instrument is called "junior." 

It appears that soon after this date, Nathaniel (33) made up his mind 
to leave Rochester. On April 2, 1742, he sold to John Gifford of Fal- 
mouth, for £510, part of the Jacob Thompson tract mentioned above, 
"the sd land it Lyeth on ye Westerly Side of the Road that leads from 
the Mills to Middleborough," and the other tract he had bought of Joseph 
Burgess. This document was signed in full by Nathaniel, showing that 
he could at least write his name. On Dec. 15, 1742, he sold to Joseph 
Clarke the tract he had bought of George King in 1737. In 1743 he sold 
to Amos Bates of ]\Iiddleboro, for £200, "a Certain Mantion hoiLse & land 
in Rochester being the homestead which the said Nathaniel Goodspeed 
liveth on." The date of this deed was April 2. This homestead was situ- 
ated near the farms of Joshua Lawrence and John Combs. The convey- 
ance was signed by both Nathaniel and his wife Deborah. This seems 
to have completed the sale of all the land owned by Nathaniel at Roches- 

Before selling his homestead at Rochester, Nathaniel (33) bought a 
farm in Leicester Township, "Worcester Coiinty, Mass., as shown by the 
following extract: "Jonathan Merritt, of Hebron, in ye County of Hart- 
ford, in ye Collony of Connecticutt, in New England, Yeoman, for the 
sum of £800 Old Tenor paid me by Nathaniel Goodspeed, of Rochester, 
in ye County of Plymouth, in ye Province of Massachusetts Bay, Gentle- 
men," sold him seventy acres in the Township of Leicester, County of 
Worcester, the same being "a part of the farm I have a Deed of from my 
Brother Ichabod Merritt." It "a bounds west on ye farm of Christopher 
Jacob Lawton of sd Town and is to run all along by the sd farm north 
and south or as the Line is between sd Lawton and sd Merritt, and ye sd 
Land Shall be so wide in Breadth from one to the other all the way in 
Equal Breadth so Wide as to eompleat & makeup out of sd farm on ye sd 
Line sd seventy acres except ye half acre that I sold, Lying on ye north 
side of ye County Road of sd farm." This conveyance is dated March 
15, 1743. It is thus presumed that in 1743 Nathaniel and Deborah moved 
from Rochester to Leicester. 

The records at Worcester show a number of interesting things con- 
cerning Nathaniel. In 1758, in a suit at law, he obtained a judgment 
against Nathaniel Green for over £8. This judgment was satisfied by a 
levy against the lands of Green, yielding Nathaniel over three acres. 
The attestation is in the following words: "Capt. Nathaniel Goodspeed 
acknowledged this instrument to be his act and deed." In March, 1765, 


Nathaniel bought a tract of Benjamin Tucker. In 1766 he mortgaged his 
home to Joseph Jackson of Boston "and is the place where I now Dwell 
and which I purchased of Jonathan Merritt. ' ' This tract consisted of sev- 
enty acres. This instrument was signed by Nathaniel and Deborah and 
was witnessed by John Brown, Timothy Paine and Elizabeth Goodspeed. 
The latter may have been the wife of Shearjashub (86), or may have 
been a daughter of Nathaniel (33). It would appear from the records 
that, in the end, Nathaniel lost his homestead under the above mortgage. 
In March, 1770, Nathaniel, "of Leicester, yeoman," sold to Issaeher 
Batts of the same place, for £200, two pieces of land in Leicester one "ad- 
joining Darley Ryan's, Seth Washburn's, and Benjamin Merritt 's," and 
the other "adjoining Capt Jonathan Newhall's, Benjamin Pond's, Seth 
Washburn's and Thomas Stulto's." This conveyance was signed by both 
Nathaniel and Deborah. 

About 1769 Nathaniel (33) seems to have moved to Connecticut. On 
Dec. 25, 1769, Barehiah Cody, "of Killingly, County of Windham, Colony 
of Connecticut," for the sum of £23, sold to Nathaniel Goodspeed "of 
Leicester, Mass, County of Worcester, Province of Massachusetts Bay," 
a tract of land in Killingly, containing by estimation forty-five acres, 
bounded by the land of Isaac Cutler, Joseph Cutler, Joseph Covel and 
Corporal Brown. In 1774 Ezekiel Harrington of Pomfret, Windham 
County, Colony of Connecticut, "physician," for £45 paid to him by 
Nathaniel Goodspeed "of Woodstock, County of Windham, and Colony 
of Connecticut," sold the latter a tract "in Chesterfield, County of Hamp- 
shire, Province of Massachusetts Bay, in that part of Said Chesterfield 
called Quabbin propriety & is lot No. 44 in the third Division of said 
Quabbin propriety Containing fifty acres be the Same more or less." 
It would seem from this document that Nathaniel lived at Woodstock, 
Conn. But the following indicates that he had moved across the line 
into the Province of Massachusetts Bay: In Dec, 1779, "Joseph Steel of 
Merryfield, Hampshire County, State of Massachusetts Bay," sold to the 
latter over fifty-one acres in Merryfield, "of the Thomas Brown place," 
which had passed to Steel the same year. On the east of this tract stood 
a dwelling and a barn. This land cost nearly $150 an acre, showing the 
great depreciation of the Colonial currency. Nathaniel (33) is first 
spoken of as "of Woodstock, Connecticut," but later as "of Sturbridge, 
Massachusetts. ' ' In the Killingly records appears the item that on August 
20, 1771, Zacheus Brown and Elizabeth Goodspeed were united in mar- 
riage at Putnam Heights, Windham County, Conn. It is probable that 
this Elizabeth (87) was a daughter of Nathaniel and Deborah. How- 
ever, she may have been a daughter of Stephen (32) and Bethiah who 
lived at Poster, R. I., a short distance to the eastward.. Nathaniel and 


Stephen were brothers. In 1777, Seth Bond, of Sturbridge, sold to Na- 
thaniel "of Woodstock, Windham County, Connecticut," for the sum 
of £118, a tract in Sturbridge "on the north side of the river called 
Quinnebong near the bridge upon the county road adjoining Mr. Paine 's 
and Samuel Morse's." This tract contained forty acres. 

Nathaniel (33) seems to have been a man of considerable prominence. 
He is called "captain" and "gentleman" in the records as early as 1758, 
and may have received the former title in the "Seven Years War" which 
raged between France and England from 1755 to 1762. If not, he must 
have gained the title in the provincial militia. At one time he o^vned 
considerable property, and may have received a start from his father 
Nathaniel (10), of Rochester. In one of the old papers he is spoken of 
as "of Middleborough," and probably lived there a short time before go- 
ing to Leicester. In 1747 he was selectman at Leicester. At about this 
time or earlier, he was interested in the financial experiment called the 
"Land Bank," which was an attempt of the colonists to issue currency 
upon the basis of real estate. Its advocates became so numerous and 
strong as to be able to control the Massaehuetts house of representa- 
tives, and became so influential that many of the towns agreed to take 
Land Bank notes for town rates and taxes. The Bubble Act of 1720, 
passed by Parliament, was, by a forced construction, finally applied to 
the bank, which summary proceeding ended its existence. The Bubble 
Act of Parliament was passed about the time that Law's Mississippi 
bubble burst. Very likely Nathaniel continued to reside at Woodstock 
until his death; the date is not kno^vn. His widow Deborah passed her 
old age with her son Judah (89), and is said to have reached the re- 
markable age of 104 years. She is probably buried near Brattleboro or 
Marlboro, Vermont, where Judah lived for many years. 

(4d) John (35) had three wives, as shown by the following extracts 
from the Rochester (Mass.) records: "John Goodspeed and Elizabeth 
Weeks of Rochester was married 18th December 1735, married by Ed- 
ward Winslow, Esq.," "John Goodspeed and Mercy Hammond Boath 
of Rochester were Married Febr. 5th 1743 by Rev. Timo Riggles." 
(Ruggles). "John Goodspeed and Ann Holmes intentions entered both 
of Rochester Mch. 8, 1745." The date of the third marriage was April 
2, 1746. Apparently, something had occurred to delay this union. By 
his first wife Elizabeth he had three children : 

(5a) Ruth (90) born November 16, 1736. 

(5b) Sarah (91) born May 9, 1739. 

(5c) Bethiah (92) born July 2, 1742. 

He had no children by his second wife. By his third wife he had — 


(5d) Isaac (93) born 1747, died probably 1748.* 

(5e) Mercy (94) born March 30, 1749. 

(5f) John (95) born February 26, 1752, probably died young. 

(5g) Thankful (96) born October 1, 1753. 

(5a) Ruth (90) married Aug. 24, 1760, Jabez Delano, son of Jabez 
and Hannah (Peckham) Delano, and grandson of Lieut. Jonathan Delano, 
Ruth being his second wife, no further information. 

(5b) Sarah (91) married Jan'y 23, 1759, Nehemiah Bosworth, no 
further information. 

(5c) Bethiah (92) married Dec. 26, 1771, William Bassett, of Roches- 
ter, Mass., no further information. 

(5e) Mercy (94) married March 27, 1777, Abishai Sherman, of Roches- 
ter, no further information. 

(5g) Thankful (96) remained single until June 10, 1796, when, at 
the age of 42 years, she probably married Thomas Whitridge, of Roches- 

At the date of the conveyance of Nathaniel's (10) homestead to John 
(35) April 13, 1733, the latter was not quite twenty years old, unless 
there is some mistake in the records. The tax list shows that in 1736 
John's real estate was valued at £20, and Increase Clapp's at £30; both 
lived in the same precinct of Old Rochester. In 1735 John bought of 
Peter Blackmer part of the Joseph Leavitt homestead consisting of twelve 
acres. At this date, Ichabod King, no doubt uncle of John, lived at 
Rochester. In 1736 John bought of William Blackmer, carpenter, fifteen 
acres on Sippecan Mill River. Later he bought tracts of William Black- 
mer, Mercy Randall, Sarah Holmes and others, and sold a tract to Ebe- 
nezer Luce. Sarah Holmes was probably the widow of Isaac and the 
mother of Ann, third wife of John. Isaac Holmes probably lived at 
Wareham. John (35) is spoken of as a "cordwainer," that is a shoe- 
maker, really a maker as well as mender of shoes. Later he is referred 
to as a "yeoman," signifying that he farmed also. He seems to have 
passed an active, prominent and useful life at Rochester. His wife Ann 
inherited land at "Crowmesett Neck near Sedge Cove." On Jany. 27, 
1755, "Ann wife of John Goodspeed, Abigail wife of Elijah Parker, and 
Miss Mercy Holmes, all three of Rochester, sisters, and heirs of Isaac 
Holmes, for the sum of £10 13s 4d, sold to Ezra Clark of the same place, 
part of a tract of land which Isaac Holmes got of Jabez Hiller and Ben- 
jamin Hiller and part of another tract Isaac Holmes got of Samuel 

*Isaae (93) was baptised April 15, 1748, "being sick;" he was probably named 
for his grandfather, Isaac Holmes. 


Sprague." By 1780 Ruth Delano was a widow. The following document 
appears of record at Rochester and is dated March 6, 1780 : 

"Know all men by these presents, that we Ruth Delano, widow; Ne- 
hemiah Bosworth, yeoman, and Sarah his wife; William Bassett, Jr., 
cordwainer, and Bethiah his wife ; Abishai Sherman, Shipwright, and 
Mercy his wife and Thankfull Goodspeed, Single Woman, all of Roches- 
ter in the County of Plymouth in the State of Massachusetts Bay in 
New England, being joint heirs to all the Estete that John Goodspeed 
yeoman, late of said Rochester, dyed Seized of & we the said Abishai 
Sherman and Mercy his Wife and Thankfull Goodspeed being Heirs of all 
the real Estate that Anne Goodspeed widow of said John Goodspeed died 
Seized of being Desirous that there may be a final Settlement & Division 
Between us, do mutually agree that the following Lots & Parcells of Land 
& Meadow be set off to Each & shall be his or her Share in said Estate." 

Then follow the names of the heirs, but the terms of the settlement 
do not appear on the records. There seem to have been dissentions over 
the estate, and John (35) seems to have died intestate. Mercy and 
Thankful inherited all the estate of their mother. In August, 1796, 
Thankful, "spinster," sold to Isaac Clark her share of the land inher- 
itance from her father. 

Among the miscellaneous items of interest from the Rochester records 
are the following: Sarah, wife of Nathaniel (10), was a member of the 
Church of Christ in November, 1710,. Her husband does not seem ever 
to have joined this church. John (35) was received into this Church 
Jany. 30, 1743. In April, 1743, Ruth, Sarah and Bethiah, his children, 
were baptized in this church. Abigail, daughter of Nathaniel (33) was 
baptized 1740. Mercy, John and Thankful, children of John (35) were 
baptized 1749, 1752 and 1753 respectively. John is mentioned as an at- 
tendant at several church trials from 1748 to 1764. Of a little diiferent 
nature, but intersting as well, is the following: "John Goodspeed 's Dis- 
tinguishing Mark is a half Cross ye Fore Side of ye Right & a half Cross 
ye hind Side ye Left Ears— Entd January 23, 1740." The deaths of 
Isaac (93) and John (95), only sons born to John (35), left his line with- 
out male issue. 



(2b) JOHN (3). 

JOHN (3) second son and second child of Roger (1), married Exper- 
ience Holway, or Holly,* January 9, 1668 ; he died 1719 ; they had : 

(3a) Mary or Mercy (11) born Feby. 18, 1669. 

(3b) Samuel (12) born June 23, 1670. 

(3c) John (13) born June 1, 1673. 

(3d) Experience (14) born Sept. 14, 1676, probably died unmarried. 

(3e) Benjamin (15) bom March 31, 1679. 

(3f) Eose (16) born Feby 20, 1681. 

(3g) Bathsheba (17) born Feby 17, 1683, probably died unmarried. 

John (3) passed the first few years of his life at Barnstable, but after 
about 1647 lived uninterruptedly at Misteake. Upon his marriage, his 
father no doubt gave him a small tract of land at Misteake for a home, 
probably the nucleus of the estate owned by him there afterward. 
After reaching the proper age, he was made a freeman and townsman. 
In 1675-6 he participated in the " Narragansett Wars" of King Philip 
and his allies. He was in the third expedition under Capt. Thomas 
Howes, of Yarmouth, and very probably was in one or more of the other 
three expeditions. This is renderd likely by the fact that in the division 
of the gratuity of land granted the soldiers of these wars, John received 
112 lots, while his brother Ebenezer, who also participated, received but 
85 lots. It would seem, therefore, that John served twice and Ebenezer 
but once. They seem to have participated in the bloody battle of Reho- 
beth March 26, 1676, where the white mortality was very great; but the 

•Experience was probably the daughter of Joseph Holway, of Sandwich; he was 
there as early as 1641. He was on a committee to set apart the land of the whites 
from that of the Indians. His name is often spelled Holloway, and sometimes Holly, 
on the records. His descendants claim lineal descent from the astronomer Holly, the 
first person to observe the transit of Venus. Joseph lived at Dorchester 1634, and 
at Weymouth 1639. 


power of Philip was largely crushed (see under Ebenezer (7) for more 
concerning this service). 

John's admission as a townsman entitled him to participate in the 
division of the lands of the town propriety. As told elsewhere, his 
father, in 1678, transferred to him and his brother Ebenezer all of the old 
homestead except six acres, in consideration of their maintaining him and 
Alice during the rest of their lives. The old homestead at Misteake (now 
Marstons Mills) is early referred to in the records as "at the South 
Sea," and the Goodspeeds were called "South Sea men." John seems 
to have been unfilial to his mother Alice in her old age and after the 
death of Roger. As a consequence, in her will, she cut him off with a 
shilling, and directed that what he owed her should be paid "to her 
loving son Ebenezer." 

About 1686 the following grant of land was made: "To John Good- 
speed common of swamp Lying between his fence and a Common fence 
on ye West Side of ye River by his ground being about an acre or Acre 
and a half." The following appears of record at Barnstable under date 
of 1703 : 

"The other Lots on ye west side of Indian pond viz John Goodspeed, 
Ebenezer Goodspeed & Andrew Lovell are bounded Westerly from j^e 
Commons by the Herring River and on the Southerly into the Land of 
those two Goodspeeds are bounded beginning at a white Oake tree stand- 
ing by sd Herring Swamp a little to the southward of John Goodspeeds 
house & thence bearing to a white sapling marked in a bottom neer Ebe- 
nezer Goodspeeds Land and To a stone in ye Ground by the fence & with 
a small offset bearing to a forked white aoke with a stone at ye root 
then running easterly again to a Stone Sott in ye ground before sd Ebe- 
nezer Goodspeeds Door then ranging Easterly againe to a stone Sott in 
ye ground by a white oake stake on the hill and thence ranges Northerly 
to a white oake sapling marked by the swamp & by said swamp and the 
pond. Ebenezer Goodspeeds Land at the old house bounded easterly 
from ye Commons by the old Ditch from end to end." 

The following explains itself: 

"Granted by ye Town to ye Undertakers of ye fulling Mill whose 
Names are underwritten Eight or Ten acres of Land at Goodspeed 's 
River for Ever providing they set up a fully mill at sd River and Maintain 
ye Same for twenty years and full and Dress ye Town's Cloth upon Rea- 
sonable Terms & price and ye benefit of ye Stream therefor to full Cloth 
so long as they Keep up a fully Mill there fit for ye use aforesaid."

The marshes at South Sea and about Oyster Island were set off to 
persons living in that part of the town ; and Mr. Otis says that, about 
1696, among the "South Sea men" were John, Benjamin and Ebenezer 
Goodspeed. This Benjamin was probably the son of Ebenezer (7). 

The will of John (3) is dated August 5, 1718, and is witnessed by 
"John Otis, William Comer and Benjamin Maston (Marston) ;" it runs 
as follows : 

"Item. I Give and bequeath to my Loving Wife Experience the use 
and Improvement of all my personal estate of whatever nature Kind & 
Quality forever both within doors and without for her comfort use and 
benefit and after her decease in manner following, viz. To my eldest son 
John I Give four Pounds to be allowed and discounted out of the Twenty 
Pounds he oweth me on verbal promise for upland and meadow he bought 
of me if his mother see cause otherwise to be paid out of ye estate she 
may have at her decease. 

"Item. I give and bequeath to my son Benjamin forty shillings and 
my home after my wife's decease. 

"Item. I Give and bequeath to my grandchild Ruth Daughter of my 
son Saml Deceased fourteen pounds. 

"Item. I Give and bequeath to my three Daughters Mary, Rose and 
Bathsheba all ye Rest of my movable estate, viz, all my beding, Housal 
goods and utensils within Doors and all my flock of Cattle which shall 
Remain & be left after my sd wife's decease. 

"Item. I Give and bequeath to my Grandson Samuel Goodspeed my 
saddle I use to ride on. 

"Lastly, I nominate and appoint my sd wife Experience to be execu- 
trix to this my Last Will and Testament to execute what she may judge 
proper During her Life, and after her Decease my will is that my Two 
sons John and Benjamin above named shall be executors to fulfill and 
perfect the same." "John X Goodspeed" 

' ' his mark and a seal. ' ' 

This will was probated June 22, 1719. His estate was appraised by 
Joseph Smith and Ebenezer Goodspeed, and was as follows :

*There are some discrepancies in the record of this appraisement: the above is 
not far from correct. 


John (3) died in 1719; when his widow Experience died is unknown. 
He was evidently a farmer, judging by the inventory of his estate. 
Among his possessions, as will be seen, were a looking glass worth 5s, 
glasses 6s, books 6s, and a £2 gold piece ($10). Otis says, "he left a 
large estate," though his personal property was worth less than $1,000. 
It was large for those times. 

(3a) Mary or Mercy (11) married Jany 14, 1688, Matthew Jonest 
and had (4a) Benjamin, born Jany 5, 1690; (4b) Ralph, born Jany 9, 
1692; (4c) Experience, born March 10, 1697; (4d) Josiah, born June 
14, 1702; (4e) Ebenezer, bom June 6, 1706. 

(3b) Samuel (12) married Feby 26, 1712, Mrs. Mary Howland,t widow 
of Daniel Howland, at Tiverton, R. I., Thomas Church, J. P. officiating; 
they had : 

(4a) Ruth (36) born August 4, 1714. 

Ruth (36) married, first, Feb. 24, 1731, Theophilus Bradford,** of 
Dorsetshire, Eng., at Tiverton. They had (5a) John, born Nov. 27, 1732; 

(5b) Mary, born Sept. 5, 1736; Ruth married, second, God- 

dard, and had (5c) Bradford, (5d) Samuel, (5e) Mary, (5f) Desire. 

|Ealph Jones married Mary Fuller and had Matthew who married Mary (11). 
Ealph and Mary also had Jedediah who married Mary Davis and had Isaac who married 
Patience and had Isaac who married Mercy (46). 

fMary's maiden name was Samson or Sampson. She was probably the sister of 
Benjamin Howland 's wife. She was the daughter of Thomas Samson and probably 
the grand daughter of Abraham Samson; she died Nov. 17, 1736. Daniel Howland 
was tavern keeper at Tiverton and his widow continued the same after his death and 
until she married Samuel (12). It is barely possible that Samuel may have had a 
second daughter, Remembrance, born late in 1715 or early in 1716. On Dee. 13, 1733, 
a Remembrance Goodspeed probably married Richard Borden (or Barney or Brown) 
at Tiverton. However, it is much more probable that this Remembrance was the 
daughter of John (13), Samuel's brother; see elsewhere. 

**The probate records at Newport disclose the fact that John Bradford's estate 
was probated Nov. 5, 1767. Therein is mentioned his mother, Ruth Goddard, executrix; 
his sister, Mary Jaques ; his nephew, John Jaques, no doubt the grandson of Ruth ; 
his half brothers, Bradford and Samuel Goddard, and his half sisters, Mary and De- 
sire Goddard. This record shows that Ruth had a second husband, and had children 
by both husbands. 


Samuel (12) died at Tiverton probablj^ in 1716. He was dead at the time 
his father's will was made in August, 1718. In a deed dated at Newport, 
R. I., February, 1717, whereby Joseph Chaplin conveyed certain property 
to "Mary Goodspeed, widow of Samuel deceased," his death is recog- 
nized. Samuel (12) was about forty-two years old when he married; no 
doubt he left property which passed to his widow and daughter. He 
was reared at Misteake. 

(3c) John (13) married Feb. 16, 1698, Mrs. Remember (Jennings) 
Buck,* they had :

*Bemember was the tlaughter of John and Susannah Jennings whose children were, 
1, Eemember, born Sept. 17, 1668; 2, Anna, born 1670; 3, John, born 1673; 4, Isaac, 
born July 3, 1677; 5, Elizabeth, born 1680; 6, Samuel, born 1685. Eemember married 
Sept. 20, 1686, Joseph Buck, grandson of Comet John Buck, of Hingham and Scituate, 
being his second wife. After his death she married John (13). John Jennings was 
a freeman at Sandwich in 1702. Samuel, brother of Eemember, while trying to escape 
from an English vessel in the West Indies, had one of his legs bitten off by a shark. 
He recovered, educated himself, and became very prominent in the Colonies. Isaac 
Jennings, born July 3, 1777, also a brother of Eemember, married Eose (16) July 10, 

**The records at Barnstable state that the wife of Samuel (39) was Rebecca ; 

but it may be that this is a confused reference to Eebecca, wife of his brother John. 
The maiden name of Samuel's wife is not known.

1733, at Tiverton or Newport, R. I., Richard Borden (or Barney or 
Brown), there seem to have been three different publishments under the 
three names, no further information. 

JCorneliuB may have been the son of John and Experience (Taylor) Annable; if 
BO, his birth occurred Nov. 3, 1704; John was son of Samuel, son of Anthony. 

fThe following reasons seem to show that the Remember at Tiverton was the 
youngest daughter of John (13) : 1. There is no evidence to show that Samuel (12) 
had any other child than Euth ; 2. She can be placed nowhere else than as the daughter 
of John; 3. Her name la the same as that of John's vpife; 4. As her father John 
died in 1721, she was obliged, after reaching a suitable age, to earn her own living, 
and was at Tiverton with her first cousin Euth, possibly working in the tavern con- 
ducted by Samuel's (12) widow. 


John (13) of Barnstable, in his will dated May 26, 1721, disposed of 
a large estate for that day— £1,349 15s 9d. The following is the lan- 
guage of the will : 

"I do give unto my sons (he did not name them, but they were Samuel, 
Cornelius and John) all my real estate In Lands and houses belonging 
theretoo to be Equally Divided among them with all appurtenances be- 
longing to eny of sd Real Estate I do also give unto my daughters (he 
did not name them, but they were Elizabeth, Temperance, Experience 
and Remember) each of them Sixty pounds to be paid out of my personal 
Estate and each of them a good feather bed and furniture. I also give to 
my wife's daughter Ann five pounds and to her daughter Content Buck 
five pounds a good feather bed and furniture (furniture here meant pil- 
lows, sheets, quilts, etc.,) also to be paid out of my personal Estate. And if 
my personal Estate should not be sifficient to pay my just debts and Lega- 
cies, I ordain the house and Land I had of John Green of Boston, attorney 
to Samuel Green, to be sold to pay what shall be wanting of what shall 
remain of my personal Estate. After my just debts and Legacies shall 
be paid, I do bequeath and give unto my Loving wife Remember Good- 
speed, and it is my will and pleasure she shall enjoy after my decease, all 
my Estate real and personal during her widowhood. And in case any 
son shall die before he comes of age, his part of ye Inheritance to be 
equally divided among his surviving Brethern. And if my daughters 
shall die before marriage, their Legacies to be equally divided among the 
sd surviving daughters." 

He appointed his brother Benjamin and his wife Remember his 
Executors. John Russell, Ebenezer Goodspeed, Jr., and Lydia Goodspeed, 
wife of Ebenezer, witnessed the will, the latter making her mark. An 
inventory of his estate was reported Aug. 4, 1721, by Joseph Smith and 
Samuel Jennings, appraisers, and was in full as follows:

"Total £1,349 15 09" 

John (13) inherited the homestead of his father whom he survived 
only two years. He also owned a tract which his father bought of the 
Greens of Boston, sons of James Green of Barnstable. As will be seen 
his real estate was appraised at £709, and his personal estate at £640 7s 
9d. "In his inventory his carpenter's tools are appraised and I infer 
from that entry that he was a mechanic. He also owned a 'whaleboat 
and tacklin,' indicating that he was engaged in the shore-whale fishery, 
a business in which many of the people of Barnstable at that time were 
engaged. He had also four hives of bees, which were kept by many of our 


ancestors. His house was well furnished and among other articles of 
elegance and luxury, a looking-glass is named, a very rare article of 
household furniture at that date."** His will was drawn by Dr. John 
Russell and is without date and the names of his children are not men- 
tioned. John (41) resided near Shubael's pond, Hamblin's Plains and 
was called "Pewter John" to distinguish him from his first cousin 
"Silver John (48)." Little of him is known. He moved to Vermont 
and died at the house of his son Samuel (112).

Benjamin (15) made his mark to his will dated June 16, 1733. He 
gave to his wife Susannah all his estate real and personal "to have hold 
and enjoy during her widowhood." He gave to his son Joseph (44) after 
his wife's death his homestead, his wood-lots, the two and one-half shares 
of his partnership with John Goodspeed, one-half of a lot of meadow he 
owned in partnership with his nephew. Samuel Goodspeed, and one-fourth 
of a lot of meadow he bought of Barnabas Chipman. To his son John 
(48) he gave the landing-place marsh, all the land to the north of Tracy's 
brook and all the upland adjoining thereto, one-half of two lots of up- 
land which he held in partnership with Samuel (39), reserving a road to 
Tracy's brook marsh. To his son Timothy (47) he gave a lot of land 
called "barley hill," another tract extending from the pond to the river, 
eighteen shares in a lot of land which he had bought of Samuel Sturgis, 
all of his meadow east of Tracy's brook and the island, and one-half of a 
lot of meadow which he held in partnership with Samuel Chipman and 
Benjamin Hinckley. To his three sons above named he gave his interest 
in Sandy Neck not further specified. To his daughter Mary (45) he gave 
£60, one good feather bed and some furniture, all to be paid within two

years. He gave to his daughter Mercy (46) £60 and a bed and furniture 
the same as to Mary. Joseph was required to pay Mary and Mercy out 
of his bequest when they should reach the age of twenty-four. He stipu- 
lated that if either of his sons should die without issue, his share should 
go to the other sons. If Mary died without issue, her bequest was to be di- 
vided among the sons ; and if Mercy died without issue £40 of her legacy 
was to be returned to Joseph and the rest was to be divided among the 
other sons. He expressed the wish that John should permit Timothy to 
cut fencing from the land adjoining his meadow and to be given a way to 
reach such land. His executors were his widow and his nephew Sam- 
uel (39). The witnesses to the will were Ebenezer (23), Cornelius (40) 
and Abigail Jones. The estate was appraised by John Baker, Benjamin 
Phinney and Ebenezer Jr. (23). It aggregated £1,198 10s. He had been 
a farmer or planter, as was sho-\vn by his effects. The final report to the 
probate court was made by Samuel (39) in 1746. He is called "Junior" 
in the records to distinguish him from Benjamin (19) who was one year 
older. He made his mark to his will. 

John (48) must have been a man of more than ordinary intelligence, 
sagacity, force of character, courage, and grace of person. He grew up 
on his father's farm at Misteake and learned the trade of a carpenter. 
During the French and Indian War (1757-62), when England despoiled 
France of nearly all her American possessions, and no doubt after Spain 
had joined France late in 1760, he shipped on board a privateer as car- 
penter, the design being to prey upon the rich Spanish galleons en route 
from Mexico or the West Indies to Spain laden with silver and gold bul- 
lion. Late in this war, Spain allied herself with France by the "Family 
Compact," one of the agreements of which was that should she lose either 
of the Floridas to England as a consequence of the alliance, France would 
recompense her for the loss by ceding to her Louisiana Province. This 
eventiiality actually occurred, and accordingly France gave her Louisi- 
ana at the close of the war. Spain entered the war just in time to lose 
very heavily and gain very little. England promptly turned loose upon 
her commerce, then the richest in the world, a host of privateers, one of 
which was the vessel in which John (48) sailed. 

No doubt this ship made for the West Indies to intercept the Spanish 
treasure galleons on their way to Spain. They were lucky, no doubt be- 
yond their expectations, for they captured a Spanish vessel laden with 
silver bouillon and silver dollars. The prize was promptly condemned 
and was divided among the captors, John, as ship's carpenter, receiving 
two shares. The division was made at Boston, and if tradition be correct 
the captain offered each sailor as his share of the prize all the silver he 
could carry from the end of Long wharf to the head of King, now State, 


street, about three-fourths of a mile, providing that if he put down his 
burden or stopped to rest on the way he should forfeit the whole. John 
probably received not less than $10,000 in silver. At the sale of the 
prize he bought one of the boats attached to the ship, with which, no 
doubt, to carry on the shore whale fishery on the Cape. 

During the rest of his life, he proved himself an excellent financier. 
Otis says "he was frugal in his expenses and cautious in business." He 
invested a portion in loans at interest, and other sums were judiciously 
placed. He saved and reinvested his capital and interest, lived much bet- 
ter than the average, and consequently became rich for that day. He be- 
came known as "Silver John" to distinguish him from his first cousin 
called "Pewter John." He married Mercy Bursley who inherited large 
wealth from her parents. A number of interesting anecdotes concern- 
ing the courtship of John and Mercy have descended by tradition. Al- 
though Mercy consented to marry in 1754, it was not until 1757 that the 
ceremony was performed. He thus was married several years before his 
trip on the privateer. The delay in the marriage seems to have been 
occasioned by a disagreement as to where they should live, Mercy in- 
sisting on her home at Great Marshes and John on his at Misteake. The 
lady triumphed in this game of diplomacy so far as their residence was 
concerned, but the gentleman, by yielding a minor consideration, won the 
greater prize of the lady herself. This seems to have been one of the most 
noteworthy marriages on the Cape in early years, owing to the wealth, 
sociability, strong and pleasing personality and prominence of the bride 
and groom. John (48) died intestate as is shown by the fact that on 
March 15, 1787, his daughter Mary or Mercy (120) and her husband 
Jonas Whitman were appointed to administer the estate. 

On a tombstone at West Barnstable is the following inscription:

in the following extract from the Barnstable Town records: 

"Benjamin Goodspeed being by a Wound in danger of death neare 
approaching to him declared this to be his Will that whatever estate hee 
had hee gave to his Loving wife and this hee spake the 18th of the seav- 
enth month, 1677, and is now Committed to writing this 19th of the 
seaventh month, 1677." "Samuel Hinckley. 

' ' Richard EfSngham. ' ' 

He was a farmer; owned cows, steers, calves, heifers, a horse, sheep, 
swine, growing corn and pumpkins, rye in the barn, barley, wheat, peas 
and hay. Among his possessions were two or more guns, a sword, belt, 
"catoose" box, axes, tongs, slice pot-hangers, pewter-ware, bullets, pow- 
der horn and household goods. The inventory of his estate, taken by 
Joseph Lothrop and James Lewis, showed a valuation of £60 9s 6d. 
Nothing further concerning the cause of death is known. He may have 
accidentally cut himself with his scythe in the hay field, or he may have 
accidentally shot himself while hunting in the woods. He was the sec- 
ond of the children of Roger and Alice to die. In 1697 his widow on 
behalf of his heirs was granted a lot in a drawing of common lands.

"Ebenezer Goodspeed, son of Roger, lived to a great age. He resided 
at Misteake and owned a large real estate. Jany. 23, 1740, he conveyed 
one-half of his real estate to his son Roger. December 30, 1746, being 
then ninety-one years of age, he conveyd to his son Moses the other half 
of his real estate, in consideration of an obligation from his son to main- 
tain him ten years, or until 101 years of age. His signature to this deed is 
a good one, written thus, "Eben — Good — speed." In a deed dated 

•Thomas Crowell, by his wife, Agnes, had (1) Johii, (2) Thomas, (3) Lydia; the 
latter married Ebenezer (7), as above stated. Thomas, Sr., lived at Yarmouth; his 
father was John. According to Savage this name was formerly Crow, but became 
Crowell after the third generation in America. Some writers state that Lydia was 
the daughter of John and Mehetable (Miller) Crowell, but this could not have been 
because John 's Lydia was born about 1668. 


Feb. 22, 1725-6, he names his sons Moses, Benjamin and Roger. He was 
the youngest son, and appears to have been, contrary to the usages of 
those days, the favorite son. He vpas better educated than any of the 
family. He left no will. Not profiting by the example of his brother 
John, he conveyed all his real estate to his children in his life time, in- 
cluding the ancient homestead of his father at Misteake bequeathed to 
him in his mother's will." 

He possessed undoubtedly both unusual intelligence and a kind heart. 
He was kind to both parents, and particularly to his mother during her 
widowhood and old age. She thus left him the bulk of her property at 
her death. In his old age the same kindliness of nature was shown. 
Though possessing sufficient worldliness and business sagacity to save the 
estate which he inherited and greatly to increase it, he had the wisdom 
and the parental love to give much of it to his children to aid them in 
getting a start when they married, instead of holding it until he died 
and until their great need of it had passed. It no doubt made him happy 
to help them. He reserved enough for his own few wants in his old 
age, but the records show that his children revered and honored him to 
the last. What a commentary is this on the lives of those parents who 
retain every dollar the children have helped to earn, in order to enforce 
a certain degree of subserviency and therefore a more or less hypocritical 
and uiifilial affection, instead of using a liberal portion of it to educate 
the children, start them in married life with a little home, and otherwise 
fit and equip them for good citizenship and life 's duties. 

He served in King Phillip's "War. On Dec. 10, 1675, when the forces 
of Massachusetts Colony were mustered on Dedham Plain to march 
against the Narragansett Fort, a proclamation was issued to the soldiers, 
in the name of the Governor, that "if they played the man, took the fort 
and drove the enemy out of the Narragansett country, which was their 
principal seat, they should have a gratuity of land besides their wages."* 
The soldiers accomplished what they set out to do. Accordingly, in 1685, 
an attempt was made, to have this gratuity carried into effect, but failed ; 
the officials were indifferent and unconcerned after the danger was over. 
They no doubt evaded the fulfillment of their agreement. Other attempts 
made in 1727 and a little later also failed. Finally, one made in 1732 

It was provided that every 120 grantees should receive a township 
six miles square ; this gave to each a little more than 100 acres. Narra- 
gansett Township Number 7, was assigned by lot at the memorable meet- 
ing at Luke Verdey's October 17, 1733, to grantees residing in the towns 

•Soldiers in King PhilUp's War,— Bodge. York Eegistry of Deeds Vol. XXTII, 


of Barnstable, Yarmouth, Eastham, Sandwich, Plymouth, Tisbury, Abing- 
ton, Duxbury and "one of Seituate." In this assignment Ebenezer re- 
ceived 85 lots and his brother John 112 lots, for service in the "so-called" 
Narragansett War. By April 26, 1733, 840 grantees had been listed, for 
whom seven townships were set apart. The grantees were divided into 
proprieties or companies. The eldest male heir had the first right; then 
the eldest female heir. As John had died in 1719 his lots passed to his 
heirs. Ebenezer was still living. Township 7 adjoined Falmouth and 
the Presumpscot River. Ebenezer and John were in the company of 
Capt. Thomas Howes, or House, who was commissioned captain of the 
militia company at Barnstable June 3, 1674 ; he lived at Yarmouth. The 
following, in an apparent contest, appears of record : 

"Ebenezer Goodspeed, of Barnstable, being in the eighty-seventh 
year of his age, testifieth and saith that he being a soldier in the Nar- 
ragansett wars so called, under Capt. Thomas Howes, and he well re- 
members that Mr Joseph Crocker, deceased, of said Barnstable, was one 
of said Howes' soldiers, and I think it was the year of the Phillip's war 
so called begun, and I also remember said Crocker was out that year. 
Samuel Linnel was out in Pearee's fight so called and he and the said 
Samuel Linnel were the only Englishmen of Barnstable that returned 
home from that fight, and he showed me his hat where it was shot 
through, after his return from said Pearee's fight; and further I gave 
Col. Gorham Joseph Crocker's name to return to the general court some 
time ago, and I never heard or understood that Josiah Crocker of Barn- 
stable, was ever out in the said wars, and he was my neighbor and I 
should have known if he had been out. 

(signed) Ebenezer Goodspeed." 

"Ebenezer Goodspeed made oath, &c, Nov. 13, 1742." 

He passed his long life at Misteake. He occupied many minor official 
positions and was one of the most substantial citizens of the community. 
Apparently, he first lived in a house by the salt marsh, but after about 
1685 in the house at the modern location upon, or close to, Goodspeed 's 
river, afterward called Herring river. Oyster river and Marston river,. 
He owned the little tract of land in that river called Goodspeed 's Is- 
land. In 1686 two acres near where his house stood were granted to 
him. In a division of common meadow about 1697, John received five 
shares, Samuel one, Ebenezer four and Nathaniel two. In 1713, Ebenezer 
was one of a committee appointed at a town meeting "to Consider what 
ia ye present Duty of ye Town In Respect of two Meeting Homes or 
Societys & to Consider what ye Cost of Building and Setting of two

The following explains itself :+

Barnstable. Capt. Matthew, his brother, who was the first regular physician in Barn- 
stable, came over several years afterwards. Samuel was married by Capt. Miles 
Standish April 8, 1635, to Jane, daughter of Rev. John Lothrop, and had Samuel born 
1638, married his cousin Anna, daughter of Capt. JIatthew Fuller. Samuel and Anna

•Ebenezer Cannon was the son of Timothy and Mrs. Elizabeth (Hamblen) Cannon. 
Ebenezer 's sister Joanna was the first wife of Benjamin Bursley whose second wife was 
Mary (45), daughter of Benjamin (15). 


Benjamin (19) made his will April 21, 1749. He gave his wife one- 
half of all his indoor estate to be used by her so long as she should live 
and then to pass to his daughter Patience. To his sons Jabez and Jonathan 
each he gave ten shillings old tenor. To his daughter Patience he gave 
twenty shillings and one-half of his household indoor stuff "in my now 
dwelling house as long as she remains single." He gave bis son James 
all his real estate and live stock; also his "Husbandry tackling, wearing 
Apperell, Moneys, Credits, and Personal Estate of all kinds excepting 
half my indoor household stuff Given to my wife and Daughter as herein 
expressed." James was made sole executor and was directed to pay 
the legacies. Cornelius (40) and John (41) and David Crocker witnessed 
the will. Jonathan lived at Easton. No doubt he had previously been 
assisted by his father. 

Following is the will of Jabez (49) : 

"In the Name of God Amen. I Jabez Goodspeed of Barnstable being

"Jabez Goodspeed. (L. S.) " 

The will of Jonathan (55) of Easton, signed by him July 23, 1776, 
is as follows: 

"Item. It is my will and pleasure that my beloved wife Abigail 
Goodspeed have one-third part of my Estate Real and personal to Im- 
prove During her Natural life as she pleases in Lieu of her Right of 
Dower and at her Decease it is my will that she Should divide it among 
my beloved Children in Equal parts or shares.

Abiah, Abigail, Lydia, Sarah and Molly. It is my will that special 
Reference Shall be had to what I have already given my beloved Daughter 
Patience Southworth, and that she shall have no more than her Equal 
proportion with my other beloved Daughters." 

He signed his name to the will and appointed Matthew Hayward his 
executor. The inventory of his estate showed realty valued at £58 and 
personalty sufScient to raise the value of the whole estate to £83 12s 8d. 
Hayward was unable to serve, whereupon Uriah Southworth was ap- 
pointed administrator by the court. The latter was the husband of Pa- 
tience (140). 

(3c) Mehetable (21) married Dec. 18, 1705, Samuel Howes* (or 
House as the name was also written), no further information.

Joseph born 1706, (4b) Thankful born 1707, (4c) Lydia born 1713; they 
may have had other children. 

•Samuel was probably the descendant of Samuel and Elizabeth (Hammond) Howes. 
The latter Samuel settled at Barnstable in 1639, and probably came from England with 
his brother-in-law, Kev. John Lothrop, in 1634. Or he may have been the descendajit 
of Capt. Thomas Howes, of Yarmouth, in whose company during King Phillip's War 
were John (3) and Ebenezer (7). 

tBenjamin and Alice were married by 'Squire Lothrop. Robert Shelly was a free- 
man at Scituate, Mass., in 1638; he was there before 1636, but went to live at Barn- 
stable in 1640. Benjamin above was probably his grandson.

The estate of Ebenezer (23) was probated March 4, 1760. He is men- 
tioned in the records as a "yeoman." The "prizers" of his estate were 
Joseph Hamblen, Jr., Nymphas Marston and Samuel Hinckley, who re- 
ported a total of about £14 10s. John Blish, husband of Ebenezer 's 
daughter Mary, was appointed administrator by the court. Ebenezer had 
probably passed his old age with his daughter Mary. Ebenezer (57) was 
a private in Capt. Micah Hamlin's company, service from Nov. 1, 1775, 
to Dec. 31, 1775, sixty-one days in defense of the sea-coast ; also a private 
in Capt. Joseph Griffith's company. Col. John Jacob's regiment, en- 
listed June 12, 1778, service one month and twenty-eight days, travel 
included, engagement to expire Jan. 1, 1779. As he was born in 1716 he 
must have been sixty-three years old at the latter date. There seems to 
be no other Ebenezer to fill the conditions. If so he was the oldest of the 
name to serve in the Revolution. Thus Ebenezer (57) and his four sons, 
Edward (149), Joseph (150), Rufus (151) and Silas (152) served the 
colonies in the Revolution ; the latter lost his life in the sei-vice.

tPamily tradition among the descendants of Joseph Isham, of Barnstable, says 
that he married Susannah Goodspeeil, daughter of Ebenezer (7). From data furnished 
by Mrs. Augusta Isham Thomas Hicks, of Piqua, Ohio, it is learned that Joseph Isham 
was born 1704, being the son of John and Jane (Parker) Isham. It is stated that he 
married Susannah (25) daughter of Ebenezer (7), about 1732, had Abigail born in 1733, 
Jane born 1734, Joseph born 1735, Susannah bom 1737, Jirah born 1740, John born May 
7, 1742. Tradition in the Isham family says that Ebenezer (7) was the guardian of 
Joseph Isham, whose father died when he was young; that Susannah (25) first married 
Samuel White in 1719; that he soon died, and that she then married Joseph Isham. If 
this be true, the ages of Joseph and Susannah at the time of their marriage were 28 
and 43 respectively, his birth having occurred in 1704 and hers 1689. According to the 
record of the births of their children, the youngest, John, was born in 1742, or when 
Susannah was 52 years and 6 months old. A revision of the dates and other details 
might show the tradition to be correct. Usually such traditions, though distorted, are 
based on fact.

Roger (29) mentions in his will his sons Isaac and Joseph, his wife 
Hannah, his grandson Thomas to whom he gave two Spanish milled 
dollars, and his granddaughter Puella to whom he gave one Spanish 
milled dollar. As he left nothing to Simeon (156) it is proof that the 
latter died before the date of the will. He gave to Isaac and Joseph to 
be equally divided between them "all my real estate as buildings, land, 
meadow, swamps, etc., after my said wife's improvement." In lieu of 
his wife's dower he gave her "the use and improvement of all my real 
and personal estate during her natural life." He gave to Joseph 
toward his share, six acres of rough land adjoining Edmund Hinckley's 


homestead, and to Isaac "as much land elsewhere for quality and quan- 
tity adjoining the said six acres as it is now not cleared." To the two 
sons Isaac and Joseph he gave "after their mother's improvement," aU 
his cash and credit and all his personal estate except what was therein 
otherwise provided for, to be equally divided between them. Further- 
more, my will is that neither of my said sons, Isaac or Joseph, shall have 
any demands on my estate after my decease, and it is with this trust and 
confidence that I have given them as above. I give to my daughter Eliza- 
beth Winslow all my wife's wearing apparel after my wife's death." He 
made his sons Isaac and Joseph his executors, and gave them all the 
residue of his estate after his debts and legacies had been paid. He 
signed his will with his mark, and that instrument bears date Dec. 13, 
1781. The witnesses were Solomon Bodfish, Benjamin Lombard and Re- 
becca Adams. 

Thomas (59) followed the sea for many years. In 1763 he was captain 
of the sloop "Desire" which made regular trips between Boston and the 
Connecticut river. He was still thus engaged as late as 1768. He is 
spoken of as "mariner" in the public records and his will which is 
dated Aug. 6, 1773, bears his signature in full. To his three children, 
Simeon, Thomas and Puella, he gave all of his estate, real and per- 
sonal, to be equally divided between them. To his two sons he gave his 
wearing appared and linen. To his daughter he gave all his wife's wear- 
ing apparel and linen. He appointed his brother Isaac his executor. 
The last report made to the court by the executor showed a total estate 
of £267 Is 4d, of which £71 9s 6d was personal. This was left after all 
the debts had been paid. Among the effects were a sloop or interest in 
a sloop, which brought £14, and part of another sloop which brought 
£4 3s. Other items were a silver watch worth £2 8s; "armour" 9s, one- 
half of a pew in the East Meetinghouse at Barnstable ; cords of pine and 
oak wood on Oyster Island at Dead Neck; "a house and five acres of 
land and beach with some fresh meadow adjoining Hyannis;" house, 
bam, shop and three and three-fourths acres and "skirts of meadow 
adjoining said house at the east end of the said town of Barnstable and 
is the house and land I lately bought of James Delap for £100." Nym- 
phas Marston, Edmund Hinckley and Solomon Bodfish witnessed the 

It appears from the records that Simeon the eldest son died a few 
years after his father and before the estate was divided between the 
three children. He died while serving in the Revolution, see elsewhere. 
The records show that the court gave all the estate to Thomas and 
Puella. Both children were minors, and Isaac was their guardian and 
paid out considerable sums for their support during their minority. 


Isaac (60) of Hubbardston, left a fair-sized estate. His will was 
filed for probate April 22, 1800. He gave to his wife Ann (Jenkins) the 
"improvement of his homestead" so long as she should remain his 
widow ; also one-half of his cattle, sheep, hogs and provisions and all his 
household furniture except two beds. To his son Isaac, Jr., he gave all 
his wearing apparel and his gun. To his son Luther he gave all his real 
estate (after the expiration of his wife's improvement) and half of his 
cattle and his farming utensils. To each of his youngest four sons — 
Elijah, Daniel, Heman and Charles — he gave $2. To his daughter Sarah 
he gave one good bed, a quantity of furniture (quilts, pillows, sheets, etc.) 
and one-half of his sheep. He gave to his daughter Hannah Pollard one 
good bed. All the residue of his estate he gave to his son Luther; but 
upon the latter was enjoined the duty of providing fire-wood and house- 
room for his daughter Sarah so long as she should remain single. Luther 
was made executor. The will was signed Sept. 27, 1796. 

Joseph (65) of Sandwich, appointed his son Calvin his sole executor; 
his will was probated Dee. 17, 1805. To his wife Sarah, in lieu of her 
dower, he gave the use and improvement of one-half of his real estate, 
all of his indoor personal property, all provisions on hand at the time 
of his death, and "one good cow." To his son Wally he gave all his wear- 
ing apparel. To his son Solomon he gave about the same in other 
effects. To his three daughters, Betsey Smith, Azubah Fisher and 
Lucy Hamblin, he gave one dollar each. To his three daughters he 
also gave all the household furniture after his wife's death. He gave 
to his son Calvin all of his real estate at Sandwich and all of the plantation 
in Mashpee, also his live stock, but required him to pay the legacies.

Thomas, Sr. (1). Joseph was bom 1671 and was one of his father's executors in 
1726. He had a son, Samuel, and no doubt other children, among whom was probably

Moses (31) made his mark to his will, and appointed his son Seth 
his executor. All of his debts were to be paid by his sons Nathaniel and 
Seth equally out of his estate. To his son Nathaniel he left fourteen 
acres, the same being a part of his homestead, also four acres of meadow ; 
eight acres on the Neck ; one-third of a pine lot at a place called Skunke- 
not ; one-half of his meadow at Great Marshes bought of Ebenezer Good- 
speed ; all his wearing apparel ; one-half of his live stock ; one-half of his 
farming utensils; and one-half of his provisions of corn, meat, etc. To 
his son Seth he gave all the residue of his real estate, together with one- 
half of his live stock, farming utensils, provisions, etc. To his son Nathan 
he gave £20 to be paid to him by Seth within one year after his death. 
He gave to his daughter Mehetable Bodfish his best bed; to his daughter 
Ruth Crosby a bed and all the rest of his household furniture; and to 
his three daughters, Mehetable Bodfish, Lydia Isham and Ruth Crosby, 
all his indoor movables to be equally divided between them. Benjamin 
Smith and Nathan Jenkins witnessed the will. 

Nathaniel (67) moved to Harlem, now China, Me., and located in the 
western part near China Lake ; he died about 1806. He probably moved 
to Maine during the Revolution. The exact date of his removal is uncer- 
tain. According to the records there was a Nathaniel at Barnstable in 
1779; this was probably Nathaniel (67). If so his son Nathaniel (175) 
must have moved to New Hampshire by 1775 ; see Section XXXIX, Part 

Seth (68) "yeoman," signed his will Sept. 11, 1798. He gave to his 
wife Abigail so long as she should remain his widow, the use and improve- 
ment of all his estate, real and personal, except the dwelling then occu- 
pied by his son Allen. If his wife married again, she was to receive 


the use and improvement of one-half of his estate. To his daughter 
Anna he gave his best feather bed and bedstead, three pair of sheets, 
two blankets, three good coverlids and three pillow eases — all to go to her 
upon the death of his wife. To his grandaughter Temperance Davis 
he gave one dollar. All the remainder of his household furniture and 
indoor movables (except wearing apparel and muskets) he gave to his 
daughters Patience Lombard, Abigail Bodfish, Hannah Blossom, Eunice 
Hinckley, Olive Marston, Sophia Seudder, and Temperance Crosby, to 
be equally divided between them, and in addition gave each $20 to be paid 
by his son Allen. To the latter he gave his wearing apparel, two mus- 
kets, the dwelling then occupied by Allen, and after the death of Abi- 
gail, he gave to ADen also all his real and personal estate not otherwise 
disposed of, consisting of lands, buildings, meadow, cedar swamp, live 
stock, farming utensils, etc. Allen was required to pay all the debts 
and legacies and to maintain the unmarried daughter Anna so long as she 
should remain single. In a codicil dated May 22, 1800, he directed Allen 
to take Anna to church at least once a month ; but Allen was not required 
to support Anna except at his house and only for her comfort. Allen 
was constituted sole executor. 

Nathan (71) was born and reared at Barnstable, is supposed to have 
moved to East Haddam, Conn., between 1775 and 1780, probably 1776; 
he served the State of Connecticut during the Revolution. He was a cor- 
poral in the State ser-vice and was on the pay roll between April 1 and 
Nov. 1, 1779. He was a member of the Colonial militia raised for the 
defense of the State, and may have served in Connecticut both before 
and after that period. 

On Sept. 29, 1777, Samuel Kellogg "of Colchester, County of Hart- 
ford, State of Connecticut," wrote as follows in a legal document: "For 
the consideration of the Love and good will that I have for my Dutiful 
and well beloved daughters, viz — Abigail Gilbert of Colchester aforesaid 
and Hannah Wood of Somers in the county aforesaid and Mary Good- 
speed of East Haddam in the aforesaid county and Eunice Carter of 
Colchester aforesaid," and then proceeds to convey to them all his land 
in Hatfield, County of Springfield, Mass. On May 3, 1783, Nathan (71)

Eleazer Carter and Eunice his wife, David Wood and Hannah his wife,

of 168 acres. Lot 52, laid out in the right of Thomas Kellogg, of Hatfield,

(6k) Clara (210) married Dec. 30, 1817, Ezekiel Mitchell, of Killingly, 
Conn., no further information. 

(61) Anna (211) probably married Jonathan Jilson, no further in- 

Stephen (76) was born at what is now Cumberland, R. I., as shown 
by the records at Attleboro, Mass. At the date of his birth (1738) Cum- 
berland was a part of Massachusetts, which fact accounts for the records 
now being at Attleboro. In 1762 William Dean, of Glocester, R. I., sold 
to "Stephen Goodspeed, of Scituate, husbandman," for £220, a tract of 
land in Scituate which was "one of them Lotts, Commonly Called the 
Head Lotts, and is that Number Eighty Nine which was Laid on the 
Original Right of John Penner and Containeth thirty three acres and one 
hundred and fifty one pole. In witness whereof I have heeunto Set my 


hand and Seal ye fifteenth Day of June in the first year of his majesty's 
Reign, George ye third King," etc. In 1801 Stephen sold to his son 
Charles 27 acres adjoining the Goodspeed homestead and adjoining the 
lands of Zabin Hopkins. In 1811 Stephen Sr. sold to Stephen Jr. about 
20 acres adjoining the lands of John Smith, Elijah Payne, Jeremiah 
Hopkins and Royal Hopkins, but reserved therein a life estate of $30 
annually; this transfer no doubt signalized the retirement of Stephen Sr. 
from active business cares. One of the witnesses to this instrument 
was Senie (205). In April, 1813, Stephen Sr. sold to Stephen Jr. a small 
tract. In Nov. 1818, Stephen Sr. and Stephen Jr. and the wife of the 
latter sold to Solomon Seamans for $500 about 28 acres "on the old Kill- 
ingly road" adjoining the lands of Solomon Seamans, Charles Goodspeed 
and Zabin Hopkins. No doubt Stephen Sr. died soon after this event. 
There is a strong tradition that Stephen (76) served in the French and 
Indian War (1755 to 1762) and that he was a scout in an expedition to 
Lake George. 

Nathan (200) was the eldest child of Stephen and Anna; he married 
very early and but little of him is knovsni. He may have served in the 
Revolutionary War and probably did, but such is not known to be the 
ease. Of his descendants, Isaac (941) was a merchant tailor in South- 
bridge and Norwich and was the author of several valuable inventions, 
among which were a whaling bomb, a cork cutting machine and a bur- 
glar alarm. He made considerable money out of his cork cutting ma- 
chine. Edward Buckley (1650) has the distinction of being the eldest 
son of all the eldest sons who begot offspring, back to Roger the emi- 
grant. He is an artist, excelling in landscape and portrait work and in 
music; he was for a time inspector of furniture and finisher for John 
"Wanamaker, Philadelphia. He is thus engaged at the present time at 
Worcester, Mass. This branch were Congregationalists until about 1854, 
when the Fox sisters of Rochester, N. Y., founded Spiritualism anew and 
they joined the movement. Gurdon Smith (1651) is in the cork cutting 
business. John, the father of Julia H. Sehofield, was one of the first and 
foremost to introduce woolen manufactures in the United States; she is 
descended from John Rogers, the martyr, and the famous Tracy family 
of Connecticut. Asahel (441) was a mason contractor and a leader of 
military bands. 

Asahel Andrus (943) at his death left property worth over $16,000. 
He was noted in his time, being known throughout all New England for 
nearly forty years as a popular and highly successful leader and teacher 
of brass bands and orchestras. His execution of many pieces with the 
cornet, particularly "Home, Sweet Home" when returning late at night 


in summer, is said to have been absolute perfection. His son Frederick 
A. (1661), as director of the Second Regiment Band, Chicago, is famed 
for his success as a band leader and for the power, sweetness and unap- 
proachable beauty of his playing. It is both a trained and an inherited 
gift. He passes under the professional name of Weldon. 

Helen Amanda (1657) graduated in 1870 from the Eclectic Medical 
College, New York, and for more than thirty years has devoted herself to 
her large practice. Endowed by nature with a strong mind and lofty ideals 
she has shed distinction on the family name and on all womanhood. 
She has allowed herself little relaxation except music and other forms 
of art. As a collector of Japanese curios she has acquired a high repu- 
tation, but has indulged in this pleasing pastime merely to gratify her 
love for the beautiful. She is a wide and varied reader and has one 
of the finest libraries in Worcester — all de luxe volumes and many extra 
works with rare illustrations. She is an honorary member of the New 
York State Eclectic Medical Society, the Brooklyn Academy of Medicine 
and the National Eclectic Society, and represented the first mentioned 
at the World's Pair. She is also a member of the Worcester Woman's 
Club, the Woman's Home Club Association, the Friday Morning Club 
(Musical), the Worcester Art Society, the Worcester Society of An- 
tiquity and a sustaining member of the Worcester Art Museum. She 
aided the author of this volume greatly with encouragement and assist- 
ance. Her splendid reputation and large success are the direct result of 
her own persistent industry, brilliant mind, high character and praise- 
worthy ambition. 

Frank W. (1658) was reared in Connecticut. In 1861 he enlisted in 
the 9th N. Y. V. I. and was honorably discharged in three months. In 

1862, under the name John Roberts, he enlisted in Company A, First Del. 
Regt., and with it served in the Army of the Potomac for three years, 
sustaining in one of the engagements a severe wound in his left leg. His 
health being shattered he did not afterward begin business operations 
until 1868. He accepted a position with the American Optical Co., of South- 
bridge, Mass., with which he remained until 1874. For four years there- 
after he was with the Burbank Optical Co., of Springfield, Mass., but 
in 1878 moved to Grand Rapids, Mich., and began business on his own 
account; ill health forced him to "take the road" in 1880. He traveled 
for Thomas & Hayden, Chicago, for sixteen years, but since then has 
represented a New York house. He says he is good for twenty-five years 

James Thomas (944) resided in New York City; he enlisted Dec. 7, 

1863, at Saratoga, in Company M, Second Regiment, N. Y. V., but died of 
disease at the Post Hospital, Washington, D. C, Feb. 26, 1864, and lies 

John B.(llOS) 


buried in Arlington Cemetery. His son Clarence J. (1664) enlisted at 
Saratoga in the same regiment, Company C, Aug. 23, 1863, and served 
until about the close of the war. He then secured a position on the New 
York police force. Richard E. (1666) was appointed on the same force 
1885, and has served continuously with high credit ever since. His 
daughter Miss Ida May Matilda (2243) assisted materially in complet- 
ing the record of this branch. 

Lucien A. (1659) and Lawrence P. (1660) have been mostly engaged 
with success in commercial pursuits, no further information. 

Joseph (202) moved to Guilford, Vt., immediately after his marriage, 
but about 1805 settled permanently at Chazy, N. T., though he had located 
there before for a short time. Many of his descendants have been 
farmers. Anna (447) was a Methodist and died in WesterviUe, 0. Gard- 
ner (448) died at West Chazy, N. Y. He served in the War of 1812 as 
corporal in the Thirty-sixth Regiment, New York militia. He must have 
suffered some severe disability, because, under the law of 1816, he was 
granted a pension of $32 annually, the pension to date from Sept. 14, 
1814. Under the law of 1828, his pension was increased in 1831 to $72 
per annum on account of "increased disability." He no doubt continued 
to draw this pension until his death at West Chazy in 1859. Joseph 

(449) died among the Shakers at Watervleit, K Y. He is said to have 
participated in the battle of Plattsburg, probably in some irregular 
command. The same is true of Daniel (453) who was in Captain Fill- 
more's company whatever that may have been. Stephen (450) died 
in Ohio. It is maintained that he also served in the battle of Plattsburg. 
In 1817 Stephen (450) was ensign in the 36th Regiment, N. Y. militia, 
and three years later was a captain in the same regiment. At this time 
Charles (451) was a lieutenant in this regiment. Joseph Leonard (947) 
lived at Burke, N. Y. He was upright, broad-gauged and prominent. 
He was farmer, merchant, postmaster, county commissioner of laws, 
regimental paymaster state militia, and lived an active, honorable and 
useful life and died lamented 1871. The descendants of Leonard J. (1668) 
live at Elgin, 111.; those of Ezra S. (1671) at or near Chateaugay, N. Y. 
Herbert E. (2250) has been "on the road" since about 1890. Stephen 

(450) became quite wealthy for his time; he lived in Genessee Township, 
Delaware County, 0., twelve miles from Columbus; on his farm were 
several Indian mounds; he was a Methodist. His son Lewis R. (949) 
was a hardware merchant at WesterviUe, O., for many years and was 
both prominent and respected. Henry T. Sibel, son-in-law of Lewis R. 
(949) served three years as a member of Company G, Sixth U. S. Cav., 
War of the Rebellion. 


Hon. Albert Griffith (952) proved to be one of the ablest and most 
versatile of the name. He was a farmer, jeweler, minister, public official, 
law-maker. He was educated at the Wesleyan Seminary, "Westerville, 0., 
and moved to LaSalle County, 111., in 1844. There during the Rebellion 
he served as provost marshal of the Sixth Congressional district. In 1864 
he moved to Odell, Livingston County, III, where in October of the same 
year he was ordained a deacon of the M. E. church; four years later he 
became an elder. He was compelled to relinquish the ministry, owing to 
a severe bronchial affliction. Being an ardent Republican, he early and 
prominently identified himself with that party. He served as justice of 
the peace seven years, supervisor two years, assessor twenty years and 
school director about fifteen years. In 1880 he was elected from Wood- 
ford County to the Illinois House and was re-elected three times serving 
four terms. He was one of the "famous 103" who stood by John A. 
Logan for the U. S. Senate until triumphant. In 1887 he moved to 
Minonk. He served as Chaplain of the Illinois House in 1895 and 1897, 
and was elected continuously to the same position in the Senate from 1889 
to 1896. His splendid reputation was maintained with undiminished 
luster till the last. His name appears on the ticket reproduced on page 117. 
The entire ticket is here presented in order to call .special attention to the 
ability and prominence of both James (1140) and Albert G (952). The 
former was first a lawyer and then an editor, and the latter was first a min- 
ister and then a lawmaker. Both displayed great ability and became wide- 
ly and favorably known. 

Eva M. (1684) since 1889 has devoted her time to the study of art — 
giving lessons and representing art institutions. For the past six years 
she has made a specialty of water colors and the decoration of china. 
For some time she occupied the position of art instructor in the Normal 
College at Dixon, 111. In 1895 she established a studio at Minonk and still 
conducts the same with much success and credit. 

Matthew Standish (956) was reared in Ohio; he crossed the plains 
to California in 1849 and spent eight years on the coast with varying 
success. He then returned via the Isthmus of Panama and engaged in the 
grain business at Ottawa, 111., but later conducted a grocery at Earlville. 
He is yet living at Joliet with his son Stephen A. (1689). The latter was 
educated at Jenning's seminary, has followed insurance, but now in ad- 
dition conducts the Physicians' Bureau of Information at Joliet. Edith 
Iva (1690) has distinguished herself as a teacher. Isaac M. (957) was for 
a while superintendent of two cemetery associations at Freemont, Neb. 
His son Charles Burtran (1691) was elected Superintendent of Schools 
of BroAvn Coimty, Neb., in 1897 and still occupies that position. 


The following is an exact reproduction of an Illinois State Republican 
ticket in 1880, showing James (1140) a candidate for elector and Albert 
G. (952) a candidate for representative; both were elected: 


For President, 


of Ohio. 
For Vice-President, 


of New York. 
For Electors for President and Vice-President, 


For Governor, 


For Lieutenant Governor, 


For Secretary of State, 


For Auditor of Public Accounts, 


For State Treasurer, 


For Attorney General, 


For Representative in Congress, 8th District, 


For Member State Board of Equalization, 8th District, 


For State Senator 18th District, 


For Representatives, 18th District, 

A. G. GOODSPEED, 11/2 VoteS. 
J. H. COLLIER, 11/2 VoteS. 


Charles (451) died at or near Chateaugay, N. Y. In 1836 he filed a 
claim against the Government for supplies taken from his premises by 
the soldiers in March, 1813. The items were stabling and hay $10, house- 
room and fuel for guard $5, one-half ton of hay $5, total $20. He lived 
at Chazy, and the claim was vouched for by Garrett Van Buskirk and 
Asa Stiles, Jr. His affidavit showed that "on the night of March 5, 1813, 
a large number of soldiers, teamsters, &c, had put up at his house and that 
he had furnished them with stabling, hay, room, fuel, &c, for which he 
had received no compensation." The soldiers were the brigades of 
Generals Pike and Chandler on their way from Plattsburg to Sacketts 
Harbor. They sometimes took what they wanted without giving vouch- 
ers, and hence the farmers had great difficulty in establishing their claims. 
Daniel (453) likewise put in a similar claim. Both were finally allowed, 
Charles receiving a total of $53 from the Government and Daniel $52.50. 

Herbert (1699) served as supervisor of his town several terms and as 
school commissioner for six years. He conducted a general store at 
EUenberg Center, N. Y. The Bentleys, sons of Eunice (960), are promi- 
nent business men at Chateaugay. Stephen's (961) decendants live at 
Ellenburg Center. Sanford C. (963) lived at Movers; he served in the 
Union Army; he enlisted Sept. 29, 1862, in the First N. Y. Engrs., Com- 
pany H, and was appointed artificer Oct. 31, 1863, was promoted corporal 
May 5, 1865, and was mustered out June 30, 1865. Dewitt (964) died re- 
cently at North Hero, Vt. Mary Jane (965) lives in Malone. Hiram (962) 
enlisted Dec. 26, 1863, in Company A, 56th Mass. Regt. At the Battle 
of the Wilderness he was severely wounded and died from the effects 
May 12, 1864. 

Meribah (454) lived longer than any of the name. At her death she 
was within 19 days of being 102 years old. The portrait of her herein 
was taken when she was 101 years old. On her 101st birthday it was 
remarked that her memory seemed as fresh as that of many at 80 years 
of age. Her long life was spent at or near West Chazy. She was a 
Protestant Methodist. Her first husband lost his life while attempting 
to cross Lake Champlain on the ice. She and her daughter Cordelia 
M. furnished valuable material for this book. The latter resides in 
Plattsburg, N. Y. 

Daniel (453) was nearly 86 years old when he died. He went to 
Chazy in 1805, but after 1843 lived on a farm at Chateaugay. He occu- 
pied nearly all the town offices with credit— was a Democrat. He was 
industrious and an earnest Christian; his last words to his children and 
grand children were, "Meet me in heaven." His son George W. (966) 
possessed a sti'ong mind and lived an exemplary life. He studied medi- 
cine and practised that profession for many years ■v\ath imusual success. 


His son William D. (1718) was a graduate of the St. Louis Medical Col- 
lege. He practised many years in Utah and finally died there. Adam 
Piatt (970) was born at Chazy and yet lives on his farm about one mile 
from Chateaugay. He has held many positions of public trust with 
fidelity and is one of the most substantial citizens of his county. His 
boys are near him. All of the sons of Joseph and Dorcas, to wit: Gard- 
ner, Joseph, Stephen, Charles and Daniel served in the War of 1812. Liv- 
ing as they did near Plattsburg, they were called out suddenly and all 
participated in that battle in one way or another; no doubt they joined 
other campaigns around Lake Champlain. It is claimed that Daniel 
was pensioned for his services, but this statement could not be verified 
by the records. 

Simpson (203) grew up at Poster, R. I. The State records there 
show that he was enrolled at the age of seventeen years as a soldier and 
served in the campaign of 1782, being discharged Dec. 20, 1782. He also 
served at the battle of Plattsburg, War of 1812, and in other campaigns 
around Lake Champlain and Lake George. There is a strong tradition in 
the family that either during the Revolution or the War of 1812, in some 
engagement in which he participated, the deck of his vessel was strewn 
with dead and wounded soldiers. If this tradition is correct the battle 
miist have been the Revolution. He was pensioned for disability under 
the law of 1814, and was in receipt of this pension in 1818 ; also on 1834 
at which date he lived in Essex county, N. Y. His name is spelled Symp- 
son in the records of the Pension Department, and his age is given in 1834 
as 69 years. After the war he followed the sea for several years. He 
lies buried at Wooster, 0. 

Forest Meaker (456) passed his life as a farmer in New York. Many 
of his descendants still live in the Adirondack region of that State ; gen- 
erally they are farmers or mechanics. Rodolphus H. (977) enlisted in 
Company A, 77th N. Y. V. I., served two years, was then mustered out 
for disability due to disease, came home, recovered, enlisted again in 
the 2d N. Y. Vet. Cav. and served until the end of the war. Several of 
his children reside in Cohoes, N. Y. Decendants of ApoUos (982) live in 
New York State. Wesley V. W. (979) resides at Westport, N. Y. Henry 
M. (984) lives at Ticonderoga, N. Y. Alonzo (980) lived at or near 
Keene, N. Y. It has been very difficult to get any information from this 

Simpson S. (463) lived many years at Wooster, 0. Later he was a 
merchant at Urbana, 111. His son Doras H. (989) is a carpenter at Ur- 
bana. Harrison (991) was a tinner. Charles H. (995) is a foundryman 
at Lincoln, Neb. Luther H. (996) conducts a restaurant at Urbana. 
Hurd M. (994) was a printer. William H. (1756) was lately a car in- 


spector at or near Denver, Colo. Harrison (991) served in the Union 
Army — was orderly sergeant of Company K, 25th 111. V. I. ; he was mus- 
tered in Aug. 22, 1861, and mustered out Sept. 5, 1864 ; he was severely 
wounded by a shell, and in the end died from the effects at Reading, Kaa., 
1880. He lived for a time at Huron, S. D. He was a hardware merchant, 
justice of the peace and useful citizen. 

Rev. James M. (992) has shown marked intellectual and moral qual- 
ities. Under great difSeulties he secured a good education, finishing at 
the University of Illinois and Northwestern University. In early man- 
hood, while attending a great revival in the Methodist church at Urbana, 
he gave his heart to Christ and soon began studying for the ministry. 
In due time he was admitted to the Central Illinois Conference of the 
M. E. Church and ever since has been one of the leading members of the 
Conference. He served in Company K, 69th I. V. I. from June 4, 1862, 
to Oct. 6, 1862, and later as sergeant in Company A, 135th I. V. I. from 
June 6, 1864, to Sept. 28, 1864. His son Wilbur F. (1764) graduated from 
the University of Illinois in 1905 with the degree of B. S. George 
W. (993) served in the Union Army as a member of Company A, 135th 
111. V,. I. from May 4, 1864, to Sept. 28, 1864, Francis Snyder, son in law 
of Simpson S. (463) served over three years in the 76th 111. V. I. 

Ezra (204) spent his life in Rhode Island. In 1800 he bought of 
Thomas Seamans a tract of land, a part of "the old Seamans and Bowen 
places on the road from Hopkins' Mills to Killingly" and adjoining the 
farm of Jeremiah Hopkins. The name of Sarah, wife of Ezra, appears 
on this instrument. In July, 1805, Ezra and Sarah, of Foster, sold to 
Augustus Phillips "all the Real Estate that our Honored Father Eze- 
kiel Phillips, Late of Foster, Dec'd Died siezed of." Stephen (76) father 
of Ezra witnessed the signatures. Olney (468) died near the old home- 
stead at Foster. In Sept., 1839, he bought of Harris Kies a tract in 
Killingly "on the highway leading from Westfield IMeetinghouse to Plain- 
field and adjoining Edmond Badger's" the consideration being $1,900. 
About 1850 he bought the "old Kies place" of Seba Adams, his brother 
in law. His son Daniel W. (998) lives in Providence and is engaged in 
the wholesale hay and straw business. Phebe E. (999) lives in Daniel- 
son, Conn. Smith (997) enlisted in the Tenth Lt. Bat., R. I. V.,— was 
mustered in May 26, 1862, and mustered out Aug. 30, 1862; he also 
served in Company C, Twelfth, R. I. V., enlisting Sept. 1862 and being 
mustered in Oct. 13, 1862, and mustered out July 29, 1863. After the 
war he lived for a time at Camp Harney, Ore., where he finally died. 

Stephen (208) lived for many years in Rhode Island. About 1801 
he and his brothers Joseph and Simpson, settled in the Lake George or 
Lake Champlain country in New York, but five years later Stephen re- 


turned to Rhode Island and married Irene Bennett. In 1828 he moved 
to near Edmeston, N. Y., but six years later moved to Pittsfield, and there 
lived until his death in 1870. His sons Emery (478) and Milo (479) were 
farmers and lived in that vicinity until they too passed away. Charles 
A. (1002) still resides at Edmeston. 

Charles (207) lived in Rhode Island until his death. In 1818 he and 
Sarah sold a tract of land at Foster to Nathaniel Comer and in 1820 
sold a tract formerly owned by Stephen Sr. (76). The records show that 
he also owned land near Scituate, R. I. 

Jason (209) upon attaining manhood went to New York and located 
in the vicinity of Glen Falls. He was living at Warrensburg, N. Y., in 
1810. He married there and in that vicinity his children were born. 
About the year 1814 he went West to the Holland Purchase, possibly in 
search of a new home, but was never afterward heard from; his fate is 
not known. He may have met with an unforeseen fatality. Isabella his 
wife died about the same time or soon afterward, and thus their little 
children were thrown upon the mercy of the world; they were reared, 
partly at least, by their grandparents Millard. James (483) went West 
and settled at Belvidere, 111. He passed an uneventful life and died there 
about 1899 of extreme old age. His son Charles E. (1007) served three 
years in the Union Army as a member of a drum corps.. After the war 
he occupied a position with Field & Leiter, Chicago, for fourteen years, 
was then with Storm & Hill for some time, and then accepted a position 
with a mercantile house in Brooklyn, N. Y.., where he now is. 

Stephen (484) was reared by his grandfather Millard. He learned 
blacksmithing and later conducted a foundry at Glens Falls, N. Y. About 
1843 he bought land west of that town and laid out a village which was 
called Goodspeedville. It is a large place and now known as West 
Glens Falls. In 1856 he moved to Avon, III., and engaged in merchan- 
dising, but a little later located at Janesville, Wis. After 1870 he lived 
with his sons in Chicago until his death at the age of over 94 years. 

Rev. Edgar Johnson (1008) D. D., was educated in the Glens Falls 
Academy, Union College, Rochester University and Rochester Theological 
Seminary, and was ordained pastor of the Central Baptist Church, 
Poughkeepsie, in 1856, at the age of twenty-three years. Two years 
later he came West and settled with the First Baptist Church, of Janes- 
ville, Wis., and remained there nearly seven years. In 1864 he became 
pastor of the Second Baptist Church, Chicago (West Side), and re- 
mained with the same until his health finally failed him about 1876. As 
early as 1870 premonitions indicated his approaching breakdown; six 
years later he was compelled to give up temporarily his work. Later, for 
a short time, he was pastor at Syracuse, N. Y., but in 1879 went South 


to assume the presidency of Benedict Institute, Columbia, S. C. The 
change did h!m little good and he passed away June 12, 1881. In 1867 
he received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Eochester University. 
His ministry of the Second Baptist Church, Chicago, was distinguished 
for its practical character and its phenomenal success. In eleven years 
he raised the church from a membership of about 200 to one of over 
1,300. He is generally and justly regarded as one of the most gifted and 
successful pastors of the Baptist denomination. Hundreds of old people 
on the West Side in Chicago still see around them the uplifting influ- 
ences of his practical Christianity and recall his name and ministry with 
swelling hearts. He was the author of a "History of the Chicago Fire," 
"Life of Jesus for Young People," "Lives of the Apostles for the 
Young," "The Wonderful Career of Moody and Sankey in Great Britain 
and America," besides essays and sermons. Several of his works had a 
large sale — are selling yet. He was probably the flower of this fine 
branch and one of the most gifted and brilliant of the Goodspeed family. 

George Stephen (1776) was educated at Brown University, Rochester 
Theological Seminary and the Baptist Union Theological Seminary, Chi- 
cago (Morgan Park). He was ordained in 1884, and for short periods 
filled pastorates at Sonora, Calif., and Springfield, Mass. While at Mor- 
gan Park he was the pupil of the late William R. Harper who in a large 
measure shaped his future theological studies. In 1888 he was occupied 
as an assistant at Yale University where Dr. Harper had become professor 
of Semitic Languages. He received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy 
from Yale, studied a year at Freiberg, Germany, was given an associate 
professorship in Chicago University in 1893 and was soon afterward 
raised to a full professorship. From 1895 to 1901 he officiated as Uni- 
versity Recorder. He became one of the foremost American authorities 
on ancient Assyrian and Babylonian history and on comparative religion, 
of which chairs he occupied the professorship in Chicago University. 
He was the author of a number of important theological works, among 
which were "Outlines of Lectures on the History of the Hebrews," 'Is- 
rael's Messianic Hope," "A History of the Babylonians and AssjTians," 
"The History of the Ancient World," &c. He belonged to several im- 
portant educational societies. Amid great promise he died very sud- 
denly February, 1905. 

Jerome Washington (1009) showed rare mental and moral gifts at 
an early age. He was an omniverous reader, entertained high ambi- 
tions, but owing to excessive application, his sight failed him when he 
was sixteen years old and was never fully recovered. He was con- 
verted at thirteen, united with the Baptist Church, aspired to the minis- 
try, but was forced to abandon this purpose. In 1855 he went to Avon, 

Alice L. (1204) 


111., and was there engaged in merchandising for ten years. He then 
established a successful book publishing house in Chicago and compiled 
many of his own publications, one of which, "Footprints of the Ages," 
passed through several editions and had a phenomenal sale — is selling yet. 
He was intensely interested in everything benevolent, religious and spir- 
itual. The Chicago fire destroyed all he possessed, but he resumed and 
again succeeded, though he lost heavily through dishonest employes. In 
1879 he removed to Gunnison County, Colo., and became interested in 
mining. While engaged in perfecting his claims, he was suddenly killed 
by a tremendous snow-slide down Gothic mountain near the town of 
Gothic, Jan. 25, 1883. The last he was seen alive by his devoted wife 
and children was when he waved them a fond good bye from the hill 
as he left home that morning to carry supplies to his men. He was buried 
under 500 feet of snow, and his body was not recovered until the last 
of the following June. He lies buried in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago. 
His life was filled with right impulses and noble acts. 

Henry Stephen (1010) was educated at Knox College and the Uni- 
versity of Michigan. He studied law in the Poughkeepsie Law School 
and was admitted to the bar. The Rebellion broke out and he enlisted 
at Avon, 111., as a private in the 61st 111. V,. I. ; he became sergeant, then 
second lieutenant June 5, 1862, adjutant Oct. 9, 1862, captain of Company 
I, Feb. 25, 1864, and was mustered out as captain, March 24, 1865. He 
served throughout the war in the Western armies, and participated in the 
last great battle of the West — Nashville. He proved an able officer 
and led a number of important, hazardous and successful scouts in Ar- 
kansas (see Rebellion Records). After the war he engaged in business 
in Chicago and later in New York. He was for a time with the National 
Soldiers' Home, Virginia, but is now with the Illinois Soldiers' Home, 
Danville. He possesses the fine mind characteristic of this branch of the 
family. His son Henry Stark (1782) and daughter Gertrude C. (1783) 
are graduates of Bates College, Maine, class of 1898. The former is a 
graduate of the New York Law School with the degree of LL.B,. class 
1902, and LL.M. class 1903. In the class of 1902 he graduated with 
high honors, and in the class of 1903 he finished at the head of his 
class by six per cent. He possesses the brilliant mind and rare oratory of 
this branch. 

Thomas W. (1012) D. D., was educated at the Universities of Chicago 
(old) and Rochester, and at Rochester Theological Seminary. He was 
ordained in 1865, served as pastor of the North Baptist Church, Chicago, 
one year, of a Baptist Church at Quincy, 111., six years, and of the Second 

Baptist Church, Chicago, four years. In 1876 he became secretary of 
the Baptist Theological Union, Chicago, and in 1879 treasurer of the 


Northwestern Baptist Educational Society. In 1881 he was given the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity by Chicago University. Since the organiza- 
tion of the new Chicago University, he has served it as secretary, regis- 
trar and otherwise. He is a central figure at this great institution. 
Charles T. B. (1784) graduated from Dennison University, 0., 1890, and 
from the Chicago College of Law 1893; he is practicing in Chicago. 
Edgar J. (1785) graduated from Dennison University 1890, and from the 
Divinity School of the University of Chicago 1897. He received the de- 
gree of Doctor of Philosophy from this institution in 1898, then for two 
years traveled and studied in England, Germany, Egypt and Palestine. 
He was appointed an assistant in Biblical and Patristic Greek in this 
institution in 1898, and by steady steps was advanced to a full professor- 
ship in 1905. 

This branch (the children of Stephen (484) and Jane Johnson) is 
above the average of the Goodspeed family in mentality. The union of 
Stephen and Jane brought together an unusual and delightful mingling 
of mental and moral gifts. Even in their teens the boys excelled in 
forensic oratory, or rare spiritual interpretation, or both. At the age 
of twenty years Edgar J. was an impassioned pulpit speaker. All possess- 
ed in a marked degree the marvelous power of holding and swaying 
large audiences by brilliant and persuasive speech. All families have 
high, low and medium tides. The children of Stephen and Jane were 
high tide. Another generation or two and the mental and spiritual waves 
will dash higher than before, carrying on their white crests the fragrant 
blossoms of culture, religion and refinement swept on to descendants as 
a heritage of nobility and renown.

children by De Graw. 

Nathaniel (77) was probably reared at or near Cumberland, R. I., and 
at Seituate, R. I. The approximate date of his birth is fixed by a land 
transfer at Seituate, R. I., Feb. 15, 1765, showing that he had reached his 
majority at least by that time; he bought of John Tracy the old Tracy 
homestead, paying therefor £500 (probably Rhode Island currency which 
had greatly depreciated in value). Two years later he married, very 
likely at Seituate. On the 6th of June, 1770, George Nies, of Newburgh 
precinct, Ulster County, Province of New York, for the consideration of 
£200, sold Nathaniel a tract of about 100 acres, the same being part of 
an estate of 1,000 acres in Ulster County, which Thomas Burnett had 
transferred to George Nies. It seems that Nathaniel was unable to pay 
for the land thus bought, because on May 7, 1772, he and wife Mary 
conveyed to Josephat Hasbrouek the same tract. In this deed the follow- 
ing odd and old-fashioned description in part was employed : 


"Together with all and singular houses, buildings, erections, fences 
and improvements whatsoever upon the same, together with all and singu- 
lar woods, underwoods, trees, timber, feedings, and pastures, meadows, 
marshes, swamps, ponds, pools, waters, water-courses, rivulets, runs 
and streams of water; fishing, fowling, hawking, hunting, mines and 
minerals, standing, lying or growing, or has been used or enjoyed within 
the limits and bounds aforesaid, and all other profits," etc. 

Nathaniel still owned his land at Scituate, R. I., but two years later 
directed its sale, as shown by the following document: 

"Know all men by these presents. That I Nathaniel Goodspeed, of 
New Marlborough Precinct, Ulster County, Province of New York, have 
constituted, made and appointed, &e., my Trusty and Loving Friend Jo- 
seph Cole, of the Province of Newpalz, County and Province aforesaid, 
my True and Lawfull attorney * * * to give a deed or title for a 
piece of land lying in Scituate in Rhode Island government. ' ' 

This power of attorney is dated July 25, 1774, and is signed by Na- 
thaniel with his full name. The records at Poughkeepsie show, that in 
1779 Nathaniel secured judgment for £100 in a suit of trespass on the 
case against Edward Simmons and Adolph De Grove. At Albany among 
the Land Papers under date of 1788, Vol. LV, page 24, Certificate No. 12, 
Nathaniel is granted Lot 163 of 430 acres, in Chemung Town for his Revo- 
lutionary services. On record in the old Township of Chemung, N. Y., is 
the original patent for this 430 acres. Lot 163, from the government to 
Nathaniel. It is dated Nov. 12, 1788. Nathaniel moved to the Township 
of Tioga, Tioga Coimty, N. Y., about 1791. In mortgage 34 of the records 
at Owego, in a description under date of July 18, 1792, a certain tract of 
land is stated to be near his. The records there indicate that he owned 
Lot 2, Yates' location, a tract afterward possessed by Charles Ransom. 

Nathaniel (77) was commissioned second lieutenant Oct. 17, 1775, in 
the Company of Capt. Lewis Dubois, Fourth Regiment Col. Jonathan Has- 
brouck, New York Line, "in the northeast district of Marlboro Precinct." 
He served as second lieutenant under Capt. Jacob "Wood in the same 
regiment. He also served in Capt. Ransom's (or Remsen's) Company, 
Col. Pawling 's regiment (Third) Ulster County militia. He no doubt 
participated in numerous expeditions and campaigns. He is said to have 
owned a grist-mill on Fishkill Creek, Dutchess County, N. Y., during the 
Revolution and to have supplied the Continental troops with flour and 

He no doubt died during the summer or fall of 1796, and was buried 
at Tioga Center, Tioga County. On Dec. 29, 1796, an application for the 


partition of the estate "of the late Nathaniel Goodspeed, " consisting of 
430 acres, was filed at Owego by his heirs, among whom were Nathaniel 
Jr., John and David, all minors. The application was granted, and Cor- 
neliiis Brooks, Beniah Mundy and James McMasters were appointed 
commissioners to divide the estate. On Feb. 8, 1797, Ebenezer Taylor, Jr., 
was appointed guardian of John and David and Philip Taylor of Na- 
thaniel, the bond in each case being £400 (inflated currency, no doubt). 
Prior to the partition the heirs had been tenants in common. The sur- 
vey for the partition was made by David Pixley, Jr., surveyor, April 15, 
1797. The tract of 430 acres was described as follows : 

"Beginning at a large leaning three crotched maple tree marked with 
three notches and a blaze on four sides, standing on the bank of the 
Susquehana River on the northeast side of a gully, being the southeast 
corner of a lot of land laid out for Samuel Ransom, and runs from thence 
along his line north 26 degrees west 138 chains to a stake and stones, 
then north 47 degrees east 17 chains and 20 links to a stake and stones 
near a pitch pine sapling marked in the corner of a lot of land laid out 
for Silas Taylor, then along his line south 43 degrees east 117 chains to 
a large butternut tree marked on four sides near the bank of the Susque- 
hana aforesaid, and then down the said river as it runs to the place of 
beginning, containing 430 acres, that the value of the land does not ex- 
ceed £5,000." 

In 1802 Luke (215) was a lieutenant in the Tioga County militia, but 
in 1804 became a captain in the Genesee Coimty militia, showing that he 
had moved to the latter coimty about 1803. In 1806 he was major of 
Genesee County militia and in command of a separate battalion. In 1807 
he became Lieutenant Colonel of all the militia of Allegany County and 
part of the militia of Genesee County. At this time Nathaniel (216) was 
ensign in the Genesee County militia. Allegany and Genesee Counties 
were contiguous then. Luke continued to be Lieutenant Colonel of Alle- 
gany County militia from 1808 to 1814, when the county boundary was 
changed and he was thus deprived of his command. 

On Feb. 19, 1811, John (218) sold to Luke (215), both of Angelica, 
Allegany County, N. Y., two lots in Owego Township, Tioga County, 
which lots had been included in Nathaniel's estate at the time of the 
partition. At this date Lois was living and was mentioned as the widow 
of Nathaniel. On July 9, 1817, David (217) of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri 
Territory, for $650, sold to John Dubois one or more lots of the 430-acre 
tract. These references indicate to which localities Nathaniel, John and 
David had moved. Lois went West about 1820, settled near Lawrence- 


ville, Ind., and there married a German named Heck or Fleck and was 
still living 1824. 

Nathaniel (216) was still a resident of Allegany County, N. Y., at late 
as 1807 ; when he removed to Ohio has not been learned ; at least one of his 
children was born at Mentor, the latter state. The records of the Michi- 
gan Historical Society show that in 1845, Nathaniel (216) and his sons 
Orrin, George, Cyrus, David and William, settled in Dorr Township, Al- 
legany County — were the first white settlers in that part of the county. 
Daniel Vincent (1018) son of Orrin (494) still resides in that vicinity; 
he furnished the foregoing information, address Ross, Mich.

(5g) HOSEA (80). 

HOSEA (80) was probably the son of Stephen (32) and Bethiah, 
though he may not have have been. His surroundings in Dutchess 
County, N. T., indicate that he came from Rhode Island. If he 
was the son of Stephen (32) his father died when he was about thirteen 
years old; this fact would account for his presence in Dutchess County 
where his older brother Nathaniel (77) had established a home. He 
served in the Revolution and on the records of New York is reported to 
have deserted near the close of the war, though this was probably a 
mistake. As he disappeared completely about this time he was probably 
killed in some battle or expedition along the Hudson River, and thus being 
absent was reported and recorded as a deserter. If he had deserted he 
would have gone home and would have been heard from. It is much 
more probable that he was killed or else died of disease in the service. 
The war records show that he served from July to October, 1780, as a 
member of the 8th Company, Captain Jonathan Titus, 4th Regiment, Col. 
Henry B. Livingston, New York Line. It would seem that his com- 
plete disappearance with the Revolution is strong presumptive proof that 
he lost his life in that struggle. However, he may have lived and reared 
a family, but no trace of them has been found. 



(Sf) GIDEON (81). 

GIDEON (81) was probably the son of Stephen (32) and Bethiah; 
if so he was perhaps born at Cumberland, R, I., he died at Ira, Vt., 
about 1797, married about 1781, Susanna Gallup* at or near 
Seituate, R. I., she was born about 1760, they had — 

(6a) Polly (221) born in Rhode Island about 1782. 
(6b) Mercy (222) born about 1784 in Vermont. 
(6c) Jemima (223) born about 1786 in Vermont.

mima, (7f) Mercy, (7g) Justin born 1824; the latter married Susan (511) 
and by her had (8a) Elizabeth married Warren Reed, also four other 
children who died early; Susan died 1858, and Justin married 1860, 
Mrs. Maria (Washburn) Hutehins and by her reared a family; he lived 
many years at Indian Lake, N. Y. ; much herein concerning this branch 
is due to his kindness and interest. 

(6b) Mercy (222) married Rufus Clark, of Rutland, Vt., no further 

(6c) Jemima (223) married Augustus Reed, had (7a) Henry, (7b) 
Gideon, (7c) Susan, (7d) Mary, (7e) Daniel, (7f) James, (7g) George,

Dalaba, she was born 1806, died 1886, had— 

*Upon the death of Gideon (81), Susanna married Joseph Irish, the half brother 
of Gideon; Joseph was probably born in B. I., about 1764 or 1765. How they came to 
be half brothers not been learned.

cousin Justin G. Porter; (7j) Jemima (512) married Charles Fenton. 

Gideon (81) seems to have gone to Dutchess County, N. Y., where his 
elder brother Nathaniel (77) lived, about 1775 or 1776, because, on 
Dec. 26, 1776, he enlisted there for three years in the Fourth Company — 
Capt. Philip De Bevier, Fifth Regiment — Col. Lewis Dubois, of the New 
York Line. He seems to have served continuously until January, 1780, 
when he is reported as a deserter, but this is surely a mistake. After the 
war he returned to Rhode Island and there married the following year, 
and in 1782 moved to Vermont, as shown by the following entry at 


Scituate, R. I., under date of Feb. 6, 1783: "Gideon Goodspeed, of Dan- 
by, County of Rutland, State of Vermont," for the consideration of $85, 
sold to Thomas and Simon Seamans, both of Foster, R. I., a tract of land 
adjoining the "Hopkins and Dexter lines," and also adjoining Edward 
Fenner's place "on the Connecticut and Rhode Island line." He died 
about 1797, and his widow; married Joseph Irish, his half brother. He 
was a weaver as were also his father and mother. In the records of the 
town of Guilford, Vt., from 1786 to 1795, appear seven deeds to or from 
Gideon and his son Joseph. He seems to have lived many years at Ira, 

Joseph (225) resided in the town of Ira, Vt., and died there; he was 
a farmer and reared a large family, regarding whom it has been very 
difficult to obtain any definite information. His son George Merritt 
(503) lives at West Rutland, and his son Franklin (509) there or at Ira; 
both are farmers. 

Rev. Hosea (224) was an able minister of the Free-Will Baptist de- 
nomination, but also carried on farming. This branch seems to have 
resided mainly in Rutland County, Vt., and Warren County, N. Y. His 
oldest son Gideon (499) served in the Union Army as a member of the 
175th New York Infantry, Company D. He participated in the Shenan- 
doah Campaign, served nearly his full time, but was then taken sick 
and conveyed to the hospital at Albany, and would probably have died 
there had not his wife come and cared for him and finally removed him 
to his home. His health was permanently shattered, though he lived until 
1903 ; he received a pension of $50 per month. He followed lumbering in 
the Adirondacks as his health permitted. His residence was in Warren 
County, N. Y. Charles J. (1027) is a blacksmith at Omsteadville, N. Y.; 
his brothers are farmers or carpenters. All of the descendants of Rev. 
Hosea have engaged more or less in lumbering operations in the Adiron- 
dacks. James (501) was a farmer, storekeeper and later was connected 
with the marble quarries at West Rutland. William E. (502) is a farmer. 
Mercy (222) lived in Rutland. Polly (221) died early and her little 
children were reared by others; Justin G. Porter was reared by his 
grandmother Susanna. He was a private in the 75th N. Y. Infantry 
during the Rebellion. 



(5i) ISAAC (82). 

ISAAC (82) may have been the child of Stephen (32) and Bethiah, or 
he may have been a brother or other relative of Abner (104) who 
lived in Dutchess County, N. Y. If he was the son of Stephen (32), 
he was doubtless the youngest son. His presence in Dutchess County 
would then be accounted for by the residence there of his brother Na- 
thaniel (77) and perhaps his brothers Hosea (80) and Gideon (81). But 
it must be regarded as doubtful where he belongs. The New York Revo- 
lutionary records show that he served as a member of Colonel Pawling 's 
regiment of State Troops in Dutchess County. But he as well as others 
(see elsewhere) disappeared wholly with this service and it is therefore 
concluded that he too lost his life in the struggle for independence. If 
he survived and reared a family, not the slightest trace of them has 
been discovered. 



(5d) SHEARJASHUB (86). 

SHEARJASHUB (86)* married at Hardwick, Mass, Nov. 20, 1766, 
Elizabeth Ruggles,** their marriage intentions were published at 
Leicester, Mass., Sept. 13, 1766, he died at Montgomery, Vt., Nov. 
25, 1818, she died same place Aug. 31, 1821, they had— 

(6a) Alice (226) born Feb. 20, 1768, no further information. 

(6b) Rhoda (227) born Nov. 19, 1769. 

(6e) Anna (228) born Aug. 31, 1775, no further information. 

*She-ar-ja-shub, son of Isaiah the Prophet. — Isaiah VII, 3. 

**EIizabeth was daughter of Capt. Benjamin and Alice (Merrick) Euggles and 
was bom Jany. 31, 1748. Her father, born 1713, died 1790, was the son of Rev. 
Timothy, a noted divine of the Colony, who was born 1685, married Mary White, and 
died 1768. The father of Eev. Timothy was Capt. Samuel, Jr., of Eoxbury, Mass., 
who was born 1658, married Martha Woodbridge, and died 1715. Capt. Samuel, Jr., 
was the son of Capt. Samuel, Sr., of Eoxbury, who was born in England 1629, mar- 
ried Hannah Fowle, and died 1692. The father of Capt. Samuel Sr., was Thomas, of 
Eoxbury, born in Sudsbury, Suffolk, Eng., 1584, married Mary Curtis, and died 1644. 
A cousin of Elizabeth was the celebrated Timothy Euggles, famed for his ability, 
his prominence in Colonial politics, and his course in the Eevolution. He became a 
brigadier general in that struggle but remained faithful to the cause of Great Britain. 
Previously, he was colonel of a body of troops under Sir William Johnson in the 
expedition to Crown Point in 1755. It is probable that David Goodspeed (52) served 
as a member of this expedition. Euggles was second in command at the battle of Lake 
George and for three years was a brigadier general under Lord Amherst. He re- 
moved to Hardwick where lived Shearjashub (86). Timothy became representative, 
speaker, associate justice of the Colonial Court, and finally chief justice. He was 
president of the Colonial Convention in 1765. His Tory proclirities made him an 
enemy of the Whigs. They turned against him. The House of Eepresentatives cen- 
sured him and he was reprimanded by the Speaker. He was shrewd, keen, artful, 
able, magnetic and bold. In 1774 he was an outspoken and determined Loyalist. He 
remained in Boston until its evacuation; then went to Halifax and there organized 
a body of "loyal militia" three hundred strong. He died in Nova Scotia in 1798 at 
the age of 87 years. He was over six feet tall, forceful, eloquent, and was gifted 
with a very attractive personality. He would have been a tower of strength to the 
struggling Colonies. The name was probably of Norman origin — De Euggley. Their 
coat of arms was a tower flaming with fire arrows, later changed to roses.

Shearjashub (86) served in the Revolution. He was a private in

saw other service, as shown by his claim for a lost pack, as follows : 

"To the Hon. the Council and House of Representatives of the State 
of Massachusetts Bay. 

"The petition of the subscriber humbly sheweth that your petitioner, 
being a soldier in Capt. Warner's Company in Col. Holman's Regiment 
when our troops retreated out of New York, A. D. 1776, and being on 
guard when the retreat began, your petitioner lost his pack, containing 
the following articles, viz: £ s d 

"One knapsac a 4s, one straight bodied all wool coat a 60s. ... 3 40

"One pair checked woolen shirts a 22s 1 2 

5 18 


"These are therefore, to pray the Honorable Court that the above ac- 
count may be allowed, and your petitioner, as in duty bound, will ever 
pray. "(Signed) Shearjashub Goodspeed." 

"Hardwicke, Feb. 9, 1778." 

The record does not reveal whether he was paid or not. He was in 
many respects a remarkable man. He is said to have possessed enormous 
strength. It is related that seeing two men tugging at a large stone 
without being able to raise it to the wall they were building, he picked 
it up and placed it where it was wanted. He is said to have raised and 
carried for some distance a dead hog weighing 450 pounds. Other similar 
incidents are related. 

Seth (230) like his father, possessed great strength. He seems to have 
inherited from his father a thirst for military glory. Soon after the 
declaration of war in 1812, he was commissioned by Governor Galusha, 
of Vermont, a lieutenant of the Ninth Company, Third Regiment, Third 
Brigade, Third Division, of Vermont militia. In that official capacity he 
served throughout the war. On the 28th of July, 1816, he was promoted 
to the captaincy of his company and ever after so long as he lived was 
called "Captain Seth." On Oct. 1, 1818, he was honorably discharged 
from further service under his commission. In after life he occupied 
many official positions with both credit and distinction. He may have 
served in the State Legislature. He was born during the Revolution and 
died during the Rebellion. He is said to have remarked a short time be- 
fore death that he was born when his country was in trouble and would 
die when it was in trouble. He was large and strictly maintained his 
high character. 

Hon. Salva (514) became prominent in the affairs of his community — 
Montgomery, Vt. He was trustee of surplus money in 1849, member of 
the Legislature two terms — 1855 and 1857, grand juryman 1855 and 
again 1880 at the age of 75 years, and selectman from 1858 to 1864. He 
took deep interest in politics and was one of the pillars of the Episcopal 
church at Montgomery. At his death he left an influence for Christian 
citizenship that will long be felt in his community. His published obit- 
uary says he was honest and pure hearted and "lived Sans peur et sans 
reproche." His wife was also a faithful member of the Episcopal church at 
Montgomery. His son Nelson (1044) served as second lientenant of Com- 
pany G in the 1.3th Regiment Vt. V. I. during the Rebellion, date 
of commission, Sept. 11, 1862, was mustered out Feb. 6, 1863. He is a 
farmer at St. Albans, Vt. Nelson Allen (1798) graduated from West 
Point Military Academy, June 12, 1902, receiving his commission as sec- 
ond lieutenant from the hand of President Roosevelt. His order of gen- 
eral merit was 38 in a class of 54. After his graduation he was assigned 


to service in the Third U. S. Cavalry at Fort Assiniboine, Mon. In 
March, 1905, he was detailed as recruiting officer at Jefferson Barracks, 
Mo. His sister Mary Isabel (1799) graduated in June, 1906, from 
Wellesly College, with the degree of B. A. after a course of four years. 

Lewis (515) was a farmer; his son James W. (1050) follows the 
same occupation at IMontgomery, Vt., and his son William A. (1051) 
lives at Baldwin, Wis., where he went in 1868; he is also engaged in 
farming. Miss Georgiana (1805) assisted materially in perfecting the 
record of this branch. Monroe (1045) is a liveryman at Brookline, Mass. 
Dean (1046) was in the abstract business at Minneapolis; had made it 
profitable and had acquired a good reputation. He was very prominent 
in the Royal Arcanum, a member of the Grand Council and Past Regent 
of Minnehaha Council No. 1160. William (516) lived at Poultney, Vt. 
Seth, Jr. (517) acquired a large and valuable interest in the marble 
and slate quarries of Vermont, and was a very successful business man. 
Both Rufus (522) and his wife died when their three girls were small; 
he possessed an excellent mind, was a great reader and a profound 
thinker ; their three little ones were reared by others, but they have done 
well and are comfortable and happy. 

John's (231) descendants have lived for the most part in Vermont. 
Albert E. (1814) was living at Britain, S. D., at last accounts. Of Dan- 
iel's children Mary Mercy (1061) lives at Enosburg Falls, Vt. ; Sarah 
Louisa (1063) at Montgomery; Cassius M. (1064) at Enosburg Center; 
and Harriet A. P. (1065) at Enosburg Falls. Rhoda's (525) descendants 
are scattered; so are Nancy's (526). Joel C. (530) is the only one of his 
father's family living. He is a well-known and prominent citizen. His 
son Fred Liberty (1075) resides at Teuksbury, Mass., and his daughter 
Elsie Isadore (1071) at Montgomery; she assisted the author in com- 
pleting the record of this section; many photographs of her immediate 
relatives were furnished by her for engravings in this work.

(7) Nathaniel (88) passed the greater part of his life in Massachu- 
setts and Connecticut. During the Revolution he served in the Con- 
necticut militia or line, as shown by the records. He may have been the 
Nathaniel who served in a New Hampshire regiment from October to No- 
vember, 1776, but this seems hardly probable. It is far more likely that 
Nathaniel (175) performed this service. He enlisted at Woodstock, Conn., 
May 11, 1775, and was discharged Dec. 14, 1775 ; he was a private in Capt. 
Ephraim Manning's Woodstock company, which was raised under the first 
call of the Connecticut Legislature for troops. This company was the 
"Seventh" of the Third Regiment, Col. Israel Putnam, all of which except 
one company was raised in Windham County.

In May, 1775, the Third regiment* marched by companies to the camps 
at Boston. A portion participated in the engagement at Bunker Hill 
June 17, and it is a tradition in this branch that Nathaniel actually 
fought in that battle. He enlisted several other times, and served with en- 
tire credit. He was pensioned under the Act of March 20, 1833, the pen- 
sion to date from March 4, 1831, and was granted $80 per annum. At the 
time of his death in Dec, 1834, he had drawn a total of $240. He was 
a blacksmith and possessed great strength and activity. Though weigh- 
ing nearly 300 poimds, he could leap over a string held about five feet 
from the ground. Just preceding the Revolution he lived in Conn. 
On July 14, 1788, Nathaniel (88), of Rowe, Mass. "yeoman" for the con- 
sideration of £160 transferred to his brother Judah (89), also of Rowe, 
"yeoman" about 51 acres "off of the east end of the lot formerly owned 
by Thomas Brown," but which Nathaniel (33) had bought of Joseph 
Steele in 1779. In Feb. 1810, "Nathaniel, of Hawley," sold a lot in 
Hatfield to Obediah Smith. In 1815 and 1818 he sold other tracts at 
Hawley. About this time, in a sale for $700 to William Sanford, his 
wife Abigail signed the deed with him and his son Elias witnessed it. In 
1827 Nathaniel and Abigail sold to the Massachusetts Hospital Life Insur- 
ance Co. a tract situated "in Hawley near the meetinghouse." In Nov., 
1829, they sold to Nathaniel Jr. (534) and his wife Polly A., for the con- 
sideration of $1 a tract of seventy acres, the same being a part of Lot 107. 
This was no doubt the old homestead, and its sale meant the retire- 
ment from care of Nathaniel (88) and Abigail. They passed their old age 
with Nathaniel (534). When he moved to St. Armand, Essex County, 
N. Y., they went with him, but soon died there, he in 1834, and she in 

Elias (232) was fairly well educated and well posted. In his early man- 
hood he taught school and learned surveying, pursuing the latter occu- 
pation to no little extent after going to New York. His principal business 

*"The regiment was stationed during the siege (of Boston) in Putnam's center 
division at Cambridge until expiration of term of service, Dec. 10, 1775. In July it 
was adopted as Continental. A detachment of the ofBcers and men was engaged at 
Bunker Hill, as stated in a note on the battle appended to the last company; a 
few men, also, joined the Quebec expedition. Tn reenlisting troops for service in 
1776, this regiment was reorganized with Benedict Arnold, then before Quebec, as 
colonel. ' ' — Massachusetts Eevolutionary Eecords. 

Note: In 1776 and 1777 Ichabod Hinckley was first lieutenant and later cap- 
tain and paymaster in the Second Connecticut regiment. He may have been a de- 
scendant of the Ichabod Hinckley who married Mary (18). 

Note: The Act of Congress March 18, 1818, provided that survivors of the Revo- 
lution who had served nine months or more in the Continental Army or Navy could 
become pensioners of the Government. The Act of 1832 extended pensions to all who 
had served two years. 


was manufacturing iron. In August, 1816, Elias (232) "of Hawley, 
blacksmith," for the sum of $100, sold to Thomas Shepard a small tract 
in Hawley. He sold other tracts there in 1817, 1821 and 1824. In 1825 
he sold to William Sanford a tract in Hawley adjoining land formerly 
owned by Nathaniel his father. Selina (532) witnessed this instrument. 
In 1826 he and his wife sold a tract adjoining land formerly OAvned by 
Nathaniel. He moved to St. Armand, Essex County, N. T. in 1829, going 
into almost an unbroken wilderness. He followed farming as well as 
blacksmithing, served as justice of the peace, and seems to have mastered 
enough law to practice informally before justices of the peace. He was 
the first supervisor of the town. He possessed more than ordinary 
ability and led an exemplary life. He served in the War of 1812. He en- 
listed luider the Act of War July 5, 1813, and was commissioned second 
lieutenant Sept. 1, 1813, in the Fortieth U. S. Infty. under Col. Joseph 
Loring, Jr. 

In June, 1832, Nathaniel Jr. (534) and Polly A. his wife, for $500, 
sold to Ephraim Baker a tract in Hawley; this was probably the home- 
stead which he had purchased from his grandfather in 1829. In 1833 he 
moved to St. Armand, N. Y., spent his life at hard work in the deep 
woods, reared a large family to lives of usefulness and honor, possessed 
the respect of all who knew him and finally died of paralysis in 1888, 
after fiftj^-four years spent in that locality. 

Milton (531) was a blacksmith and farmer and passed his life without 
noteworthy event in New York. At last accounts his daughter Olive 
A. (1081) was yet living near Emporia, Kan. His son Erastus E. (1084) 
resides at Ticonderoga, N. Y. Lucinda (536) died recently at Wilamette, 
111., a suburb of Chicago. All except two of the children of Nathaniel 
and Polly were born on the old farm in Essex County, N. Y. 

Algernon (1828) upon the death of his mother in 1859 was given 
to her parents, the Galushas, to be reared. Becoming thus separated 
from the Goodspeeds, he assumed the name Galusha which he yet con- 
tinues to bear. He was educated at the academy in Lawrenceville, N. Y., 
went West, and married at Seward, Neb. He engaged in the clothing 
business at Red Cloud, that state, and has continued the same to the pres- 
ent with a fair measure of success. Since becoming a man he has taken 
an active and prominent part in the success of the Republican party. 
Largely through his efforts from 1890 to 1904, his city was kept out of 
the "Free Silver Craze." During this time he became recognized as one 
of the foremost leaders of Republicanism in Nebraska. This fact led to 
his nomination on the first ballot in 1904 for the position of Secretary 
of State, to which he was duly elected and in which he is now officiating. 
He is in line for the Governorship. He is prominent among the Masons 


and the Ancient Order of United Workmen, having served as secretary 
of the finance committee of the latter. He has no wish to resume his 
blood name. 

Rev. Elias (533) was for a number of years in early life a manufac- 
turer of iron. From a child he had strong religious inclinations. In his 
memoirs he wrote, "After a long season of deep conviction I experienced 
a change of heart" at the age of sixteen years, though at that time 
he made no open profession of religion. Soon after 1830 he joined 
a small Baptist church, though he had been reared under Congrega- 
tional influences. Having well grounded himself on the tenets of his 
church, he began to preach in 1836. The following year he was ordained, 
after which h( filled pastorates at Stockholm, Massena, Lawrence, Nichol- 
ville, Hermon and other places. He possessed to an unusual degree that 
warmth of manner and nobility of soul which enabled him to make and 
keep friends, and this gift served him notably in the ministry. In 1860 
he removed to Addison, Vt., and there during nine years built up a strong 
and appreciative congregation. In 1869 he moved to "Waterbury Center, 
Vt., and in 1871, his health having failed, he retired. He developed 
much ability in the ministry, and was himself deeply pious and singularly 
pure hearted. Upon the near approach of death he remarked on one oc- 
casion, "God who gave me life can make no mistake in withdrawing it." 
He "wore out" he said, not "rusted out." He was poor in his old age, 
but was patiently -cared for by his devoted grand daughter Rosamond E. 
Watson, a noble woman. The affection between grandfather and grand- 
child was touching and beautiful to witness. His nephew Roswell (1095) 
wrote of him, "It affords me pleasure to offer this tribute of respect, im- 
perfect though it be and coming far short of doing justice to his long and 
useful life, to the memory of one who, though poor in this world's goods, 
is nevertheless entitled to be ranked among earth's noblemen." And 
his grand daiighter Rosamond wrote, "He has been a shrewd, close ob- 
server of human nature — a long-headed, far-sighted maji — one who has 
guided through violent storms more than one church that a more hot- 
headed man would have wrecked. I have never known a more single- 
hearted man; his only question has been. Is it right? Grandpa has come 
nearer to being an apostolic minister than any man I know. It is an 
honor to any one, be he rich or poor, educated or uneducated, to be re- 
lated to him. He is a hero and I am proud to own him for a grand- 
father and hope I may duly honor the blood and race." How, few there 
are in this selfish, sordid world who merit such a splendid eulogy. All 
witnesses bear testimony to the beautiful character and exemplary life 
of this nobleman. 

This branch generally incline to the Baptist church. They have been 


farmers or mechanics ; lumbering has engaged the energy of a few. Many 
have neglected education ; or perhaps could not obtain it. In politics they 
seem to have been Whigs and later Republicans, with an occasional Demo- 
crat to leaven or sadden the lump. Several — both men and women — taught 
school in their younger days. Roswell (1095) loved his books — cared 
little for the sport of hunting enjoyed by his brothers. He attended an 
academy several terms, but ill health prevented his design to secure a 
more elaborate education, though later he attended Eastman National 
Business College, at Poughkeepsie. He then traveled and taught school 
in New York, Illinois and Iowa. He finally took up the trade of car- 
penter and builder, mastered it, and has continued the same ever since, 
having added architectural drawing to his other business accomplish- 
ments. He possesses natural ability of a high order. He aided very ma- 
terially in completing the record of this branch. 

Of the descendants of Nathaniel (534) several served gallantly in the 
Rebellion. On July 25, 1862, Elias (1093) enlisted at St. Armand in Com- 
pany C, 118th N. Y. v., was mustered in as a private Aug. 29, 1862, and 
received his discharge June 13, 1865. He was in every engagement in 
which his regiment participated — Suffolk, South Anna, Cold Harbor, 
Fort Harrison, Bermuda, Swift Creek, Petersburg, Fair Oaks, Drury's 
Bluff, Crater and in front of Richmond. His regiment was the first or- 
ganized body of troops to enter Richmond. His first cousin Erastus E. 
(1084) and John M. "Willson, the latter the son of Harriet (537), were in 
the same regiment. Also in the same regiment were Norman I. Arnold, 
Samuel S. Wilcox and Sylvester Watson, his three brothers-in-law. An- 
other brother-in-law James E. Weston, served three years and eight 
months in Company I, 77th N. Y. V. Augustus (1094) and Wallace 
(1097) served in the 17th Vt. V. I., both being in Company D.. The former 
was mustered in March 4, 1864, and mustered out July 14, 1865, and 
spent much of his term on special detail in the quartermaster's depart- 
ment. The latter enlisted for the same term and was in many battles and 
campaigns, among which were Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, 
Cold Harbor, and Petersburg. At Cold Harbor June 3, 1864, he received 
a severe wound in the head. William (1099) served in Company D, Sec- 
ond Regiment, N. Y. Veteran Cavalry, enlisting Dec. 24, 1863. He was 
in the ill-starred Red River Campaign and was in the bloody battle of 
Pleasant Hill, La., where the Union forces were cut in pieces. He was 
so reduced on this campaign as scarcely to be able to mount his horse. 
He was finally sent to the hospital at New Orleans, but a month or so later 
was furloughed home, reaching there on Saturday, but in spite of all 
loving hands could do, dying the following Wednesday, Aug. 17, 1864. 
The splendid military record of these men will ever be a heritage of 
pride and glory for all who bear the family name.

dren of Nathaniel (234) are on record at Marlboro, Vt. 

On April 28, 1809, Judah (89) and Martha his wife, of Rowe, Mass., 
for the consideration of $800, sold to Gideon Langdon 50 acres and 40 
rods, "being the tract of land which Nathaniel Goodspeed (33) purchased 
of Joseph Steele Dec. 16, 1779." In this deed Deborah Goodspeed, mother 
of Judah (89), and widow of Nathaniel (33) relinquished her right of 
dower. This was no doubt the old homestead of Nathaniel (33). De- 
borah spent her old age under the roof of her son Judah, and is said to 
have lived to the great age of 104 years. About 1810 Judah and Martha, 
of Rowe, for the sum of $400, deeded to Welcome Streeter, of Whiting- 
ham, Vt., a tract of 65 acres in Rowe. Nathaniel (234), in his old age at 
least, was eccentric and often "at odds" with his neighbors, so it is said. 
He was probably born at or near Rowe, Mass. It is not known positively 
that he was the son of Judah and Martha. Frank A. Gaylord resides at 
Los Angeles, Cal., Harriet E. Gaylord in New York City, Fannie E. New- 
ton at Gaylordsville, Conn., and Emily M. Roberts at the latter place.

children between Abner and Isaac.

(8h) David Miller Hurd (1133) born Feb. 20, 1853, died April 7,

(5h) Abner (104) grew to manhood at Barnstable, but about the time 
of his marriage, probably 1762, moved to Dutchess County, N. Y., where 
it is presumed his children were born. He no doubt had other children, 
but if so no trace of them has been discovered. The maiden name of 
his wife could not be learned. He may have married her in Dutchess 
County, as there is no record of the event at Barnstable. During the 
Revolution he served in the Dutchess County militia as a member of the 
Third Regiment under Col. John Field, and in Capt. Dykeman's Com- 
pany. He probably died near Duanesburg, N. Y. 

The records show that Jacob (235) was a member of the Dutchess 
Coimty militia. Fifth Regiment, Col. James Vandenburg, and Capt. Val- 
entine's company, and served in 1778. They show that Israel (236) 
served as one of the Dutchess County minute men under Col. Henry 


Luddington in 1780. Both Jacob and Israel disappeared at this time and 
may have died in the service. 

Abner (237) moved to Schenectady when a young man, married there, 
and reared his family there and at Braman's Corners; he probably died 
in that vicinity. Samuel (545) died when his two children were very 
small; his widow afterward became Mrs. H. L. Jones and lived at Oak- 
field, N. T., to a great age. John Henry (1105) after his marriage re- 
sided three years at Braman's Corners. In March, 1856, he became op- 
erator and ticket agent for the Burlington & Northwestern and the Bur- 
lington & Western Railways, at Winfield, Iowa, and there was yet living 
at last accounts; his life has been clean and honorable. Edson J. (1838) 
has been connected with railways since he was sixteen years old ; he be- 
came station agent and finally train dispatcher for the Burlington & 
"Western Railway with headquarters at Burlington, Iowa. He now has a 
conductor's run from Burlington to Des Moines. Arthur L. (1839) en- 
tered the railway service at the age of seventeen years; he became con- 
ductor on the Burlington & Northwestern when nineteen years old, with 
headquarters at "Winfield, Iowa, and held that position until his death. 
Abner (547) and his two children George S. and Maria, passed their lives 
at or near Braman's Corners, N. Y. ; they were farmers. 

Nathaniel (546) seems to have lived at Duanesburg as early as 1823, 
because in the mortgage records at Schoharie, N. Y., under date of March 
27, 1823, Benoni Thompson, of Schoharie, and Nathaniel Goodspeed, "of 
Duanesburg, Schenectady County," issued a mortgage for $400 to John 
"W. "^lieeler, of Redhook, Dutchesi? County, on 100 acres more or less, in 
the town of Schoharie. Also under date of March 12, 1829, "Nathaniel 
and Phebe his wife, and Benoni Thompson and Anna his wife," for the 
consideration of $1,100 gave a deed to Peter Davidson, of Berne, for 100 
acres more or less in Schoharie County. This was no doubt the same 
tract he had previously mortgaged. In 1832 Nathaniel and Phebe, of 
Duanesburg, assigned a lease to Thadeus King. In 1826 Ira Avery as- 
signed a lease to Samuel (545), of Schenectady County. In 1827 Samuel 
(545) and Polly (Julia) his wife, of Duanesburg, assigned a lease to A. 
S. Gardiner. It seems, then, that Nathaniel went to Duanesburg as early 
as 1823, remained there perhaps until 1832, when he moved to Owego, 
N. Y. Joel J. (1107) followed the insurance business. James (1109) is 
yet living at "Waits, N. Y., engaged in farming. Abner (1108) was in the 
railway service for over forty years as baggagemaster on the Erie Rail- 
way, United States mail agent and United States Express agent; he ran 
from Dunkirk to New York after the completion of the line to the former 
place; ran from Buffalo to New York after 1861; wrote of himself in 
1891, "I have rode on the cars so much my brain is rattled," which was far 

Ella A., wife 

Charles E. (1072) 


from the fact if taken literally, as he had a strong mind and sound body 
and accumulated a fortune of about $75,000 mostly at Owego, N. Y., 
where his daughter Ida (1845) now resides. 

Isaac's (238) dscendants mostly live in New York. Harris I. (1132) 
is at New Lisbon and furnished much valuable information for this work. 
Andrew Jackson (1129) lives in Pennsylvania. Seth Bliss (1130) served 
in the Union Army; he enlisted Jan. 23, 1864, at New Lisbon, in the 
15th N. Y. Artillery, Company D, and was mustered out Aug. 22, 1865, at 
"Washington, D. C. Clark Noble (1870) served in the Spanish-American 
war; he enlisted at Oneonta, May 2, 1898, as a private, for two years, in 
Company G, First N. Y. Infantry, and was discharged for disability Aug. 
8, 1898 at the Presidio, San Francisco, Calif. Charles Henry (1867) is lo- 
cated at South New Berlin. All are respectable and in comfortable cir- 

Of this branch, Isaac (1118) when a boy, ran away and went to sea 
and assumed the name John L. Smith to avoid identification and detec- 
tion; later he is said to have served in the Union Army under the same 
name. Daniel (1120) enlisted as a private at Meriden, Aug. 22, 1861, 
in the 1st. Conn. Heavy Artillery, and served his term; he afterward 
Jan. 3, 1862. Dyer (1112) enlisted under the name Harris W. Goodwell 
in the First Conn. Heavy Artillery, and served his term; he afterward 
entered the Regular Army, but died about 1867 of disease at Galveston, 
Tex. Alexander (1123) was thrown upon his own resources when a boy, 
learned the jewelry trade, enlisted at Meriden, Conn., Sept. 4, 1861, was 
mustered in Sept. 6, 1861, in Company C, 7th C. V. I., and was discharged 
Sept. 12, 1864. He participated in nineteen engagements and received 
a severe wound in the right leg below the knee, Sept. 18, 1863, in the 
historic night attack on Fort Wagner, S. C, of which engagement the 
commanding general said, "The Seventh Connecticut has covered itself 
with glory." After the war he farmed until 1884, when he secured a po- 
sition in the Navy Yard at Washington, D. C. While there his knowledge 
of the jewelry business enabled him to make valuable suggestions in the 
construction of ordnance. In June, 1889, he secured a position in the 
Government Printing Office at Washington, and occupies the same at the 
present time. His big farm is at Fairfax Station, Va. 



(5i) ANTHONY (105). 

ANTHONY (105) was born at Barnstable,! married probably there 
about 1766, Abigail Lothrop,* lived at Sheffield, Mass., Litchfield, 
Cona., Poultney, Vt., and finally moved to Troy, N. T., about 1785, 
he died there about 1825, they had** — 

(6a) Cornelius (239) born Feb. 1, 1767. 

(6b) Rebecca (240). 

(6c) Temperance (241).

(6h) Candice (246) died 1833, unmarried. 

(6a) Cornelius (239) died in Tioga County, Penn., Sept. 9, 1835, mar- 
ried July 16, 1794, probably at Litchfield, Conn., Phebe Seeley,| she was 
born perhaps at Litchfield, March 22, 1773, died Sept. 11, 1836, they had— 

(7a) Abigail (557) born Oct. 30, 1798, died July 4, 1870, unmarried.

(7c) Charlotte (559) born Feb. 12, 1809, died Oct. 6, 1813. 

(7d) Samuel (560) born Feb. 21, 1812. 

fFamily tradition with several of Anthony's (105) descendants says that he 
was born at Ldtehfield Conn.; but the Barnstable records show as above stated; be- 
sides there is no record of his birth at Litchfield. 

"Abigail may have been born April 12, 1752, daughter of John (4) and Thank- 
ful (Landers) Lothrop, John's line back being Kathaniel (3), Hon. Barnabas (2), 
Eev. John (1). Or she may have been born April 8, 1752, daughter of Gen. Barna- 
bas (4) and Thankful (Gorham) Lothrop, Gen. Barnabas' line back being Barnabas 
(3), Captain John (2), Rev. John (1). 

**Dates of births of the children of Anthony (105) and Abigail could not bo 
learned, nor the order in which the children were born; the above is the probable 
order only. 

+The Seeleys lived at Litchfield and came to Troy about the time that Anthony 
did. NathajiieJ and Phebe Seeley were probably brother and sister.

They founded the furniture business at Troy, which has since been so well known 
and so successful and is now conducted by Lansdale B. Dr. Arba E. was ailing in 
childhood and for that reason did not enter his father's store. He was educated at

latter in 1380; he has since practiced with much success at Troy, and has occupied 
many important positions, such as coroner and president of county and state medical 
societies. His son Crawford Eichmond Green graduated from Brown University with 
great distinction and from the N. Y. Homeopathic and Medical Institute with no 
less honor; he has a very promising professional career before him.

Anthony (105) while living at Sheffield served in the Revolution; he 
was corporal in Capt. William Bacon's company, Col. John Fellows' 
regiment which marched to the alarm of April 19, 1775, served from 
April 21, 1775, to May 7, 1775 — seventeen days; also in same company 
and regiment, muster roll dated Aug. 1, 1775, enlisted May 8, 1775, ser-

He was a carpenter and seems to have moved to Sheffield, Mass., soon 
after his marriage at Barnstable. At Sheffield he is said to have lived on 
patented land which he lost through defective title. The will of An- 
thony (105) of Troy was signed March 22, 1825. He owed his daughter 
Candice $885 and his daughter Elizabeth $365, which amounts had prob- 
ably been advanced for his maintenance in his old age and which he 
felt bound first to repay and he so directed. He gave one-half of his 
estate to Candice and the other half in trust for the use of Elizabeth. In 
1832 his lot Number 129, on Second Street, Troy, was sold for $2,400. 
His eldest child Cornelius (239) was probably born at Barnstable, but 
may have been born at Sheffield. The Seeleys, with whom two of the 
children of Anthony married, are said to have lived at Litchfield, Conn., 
and probably the two families became acquainted there. Cornelius (239) 
married at Litchfield, but later resided at Poultney, Vt., where his chil- 
dren were born. On Oct. 7, 1816, he bought of Benjamin Seeley for $200 
a tract of seventy acres on the north bank of Cowanesque Creek, Deer- 
field Township, Tioga County, Pa. ; this property in time became the old 
Goodspeed homestead. Cornelius and his wife Phebe died at Plainfield, 
111., in 1835 and 1836, respectively, where they had moved with their son 
Samuel and daughter Abigail a short time before. Candice at her death 
left $2,511. Upon the death of Samuel (244) his only son Anthony Jr. 
was made administrator. 

John (558) and Samuel (560) were men of more than ordinary in- 
tegrity, strength of mind and force of character. John was a surveyor 
for fifteen years and was first appointed justice of the peace in 1828, 
when but twenty-seven years old, and served as such about twenty years ; 
he bought land in Tioga County of William Knox in 1828. He engaged 
in merchandising about 1836 and continued that occupation until his 
death, amassing property worth about $40,000. He was one of the lead- 
ing men, if not the leading man, of his community, took great interest in 
the advancement of worthy public affairs and transmitted all his good 
qualities to his children. His wife Oriel (Scott) was blessed far above 
the average with intellectual and moral endowments. All of their chil- 
dren showed superiority in mental equipment and high character. He 
first occupied the old homestead at Knoxville, Pa.; it was known as "the 
old Seeley farm." He continued to own it until his death, but lived for 
many years in Knoxville. His will is dated Sept. 21, 1864. He left the 
Seeley farm to his wife and daughter Emily, the daughter to have it ab- 
solutely after the death of the wife. If the daughter Emily left no heirs, 
the property was to go to his sons Francis, John, Charles and James.

He gave to his sister Abigail $150 per year as long as she should live. He 
left $100 to each of the children of his sons, to be paid when they should 
reach the age of twenty years. He left his store to his son John. 

Judge Francis (1134) even as a boy was broad-minded and loved his 
books. After his graduation from the excellent school at Lima, N. T., 
he went at the age of twenty-six years to Joliet, 111., was admitted to 
the bar, and soon attained front rank in his profession. He excelled both 
as pleader and as counsellor, and left a strong impress on the juris- 
prudence of the State. His keen legal discrimination, lucidity of expres- 
sion, power of analysis and unerring judgment were recognized by his 
elevation to the circuit judgeship, which responsible position he held 
with high credit and to the satisfaction of a powerful bar, until failing 
health compelled him to resign. His decisions were rarely reversed. 
His death in 1889 was regarded and spoken of as a public calamity. His 
son Charles P. (1879) is practising law at Joliet and possesses many of his 
illustrious father's rare gifts. 

John Jr. (1135) was a prominent citizen and successful merchant for 
forty years in Tioga County, Pa.; his son John P. (1881) was associated 
with him. John Jr. (1135) lived at Knoxville, Elmira, N. T., from 1867 
to 1870, then at Knoxville until 1888 when he moved to Sabinsville, Pa. 
He was justice of the peace, burgess of Knoxville borough, secretary of 
the board of education, a Congregationalist, a Republican, a Prohibition- 
ist and a Mason. 

James Charlton (1882) was educated at Knoxville, Pa., and Elmira, 
N. T. He clerked in his father's store, engaged in insurance, and while at 
Knoxville was justice of the peace, jury commissioner and school di- 
rector. In 1895 he moved to Rochester, N. Y., and in 1899 to Penn Yan, 
same State, where he now resides. He has been secretary of the board 
of education there, is a Democrat, a prohibitionist and a Presbyterian 
and is in the insurance business. He has a charming family. His eldest 
daughter Mary M. (2329) furnished valuable information for this work; 
she is a teacher and possesses the brilliant intellectual qualities of this 
branch, as also do her sisters. 

Charles (1136) was reared at Deerfield, Pa., and entered into partner- 
ship with his brother, John Jr., in the mercantile business in Westfield, 
continuing thus about seven years, then buying the latter out and alone 
conducting the establishment until about the close of the Rebellion. He 
then went west and engaged in banking at Joliet, 111. He was successful 
and in time became one of the leading financiers of Northern Illinois. He 
accumulated a comfortable fortune, but retired in 1885, owing to failing 
health. His declining years were spent with his daughter Emma at 
Santa Cruz, Calif. Emily (1137) was a graduate of Alford Seminary 


and continued a student to the end of her days. Charlotte (1138) was the 
pride of the family — bright, beautiful, gifted with charming social pow- 
ers, but was called to the grave in early womanhood. Samuel (1139) waa 
educated at Alford Seminary, possessed unusual mental gifts, studied 
law with Judge Francis at Joliet, but just as his career was opening with 
exceptional promise, he died of fever in 1855. 

James (1140) was one of the ablest and purest of the family. He be- 
came conspicuous by rare qualities of both head and heart. He was born 
at Deerfield, Pa., and was educated at Alford Seminary. In 1859 he began 
the study of law in the ofBce of Goodspeed & Roberts at Joliet, 111., of 
which firm his elder brother Francis was the senior member. Even as a 
boy he had taken deep interest in the politics of his native State, and upon 
going to Illinois soon identified himself with public affairs in that com- 
monwealth. Possessing a powerful mind he not only mastered the legal 
profession but became prominent in politics to which he began to devote 
himself. His acumen, mental sweep, warm nature and rare oratory soon 
made him a leader of public affairs in Northern Illinois. He possessed 
intense mental and physical energy, pushed whatever he undertook with 
all his might, and at his death his activity was compared to a high- 
pressure engine rather than to a heavy freight-wagon. He practised law 
with much success from 1861 to 1869, when he bought the Joliet Republi- 
can and was its editor and publisher for ten years. In that time he vastly 
improved the outfit, thribbled the subscription list, and endeared himself 
to his patrons and the community to a surprising degree. How rarely 
in this back-biting world will you find the following testimonial written 
even by a friend at the death of a trenchant partisan editor and promi- 
nent politician: 

"Yesterday Hon. James Goodspeed was buried in Oakwood Ceme- 
tery. It is painful for us to write his obituary. To the readers of this 
paper his death will seem almost like that of a member of the household. 
He was so well known to all of the older readers of this paper that all we 
need to say is "Goodspeed is dead." . . . The hold he had upon the 
readers of his paper was wonderful. Each and all felt that in the editor 
they had a personal friend. . . The first public ofSee held by him wa8 
that of school treasurer of Joliet, which he held from 1863 to 1869. No 
fears as to the safety of the public money were felt while it was in his 
hands. In 1871 he was appointed postmaster of Joliet by President 
Grant and reappointed in 1875, holding the office for eight years. In 
1880 he was a candidate for, and elected as, one of the presidential elec- 
tors of this State and cast his vote as such elector, for the candidate of 
his party, James A. Garfield. By this time his fame as a public speaker 
had become such that he was not only called to Chicago and other cities 


of this State, but also addressed large audiences in Indiana, Iowa and 
Wisconsin. During the years 1882 and 1883 he served the people of this 
city as alderman from the Seventh vrard. These vs^ere the years so noted 
as the commencement of what is known as "law and order in our muni- 
cipal affairs." Mr. Goodspeed was the leading man of the eight aldermen 
who because of their steadfast course in the long and severe contest with 
the rougher elements, became known as "the immortal ciuht" who se- 
cured the $1,000 license. As early as 1856 he was deeply absorbed in the 
Fremont campaign. His keen sense of right and earnest sympathy with 
the oppressed led him to become an earnest advocate of the anti-slavery 
cause. As a Republican he was in the front ranks at all times. For 
twenty years he was ready with voice and pen to help in every cam- 
paign, and no movement was undertaken without his advice. His death 
will be a great loss to the Republicans of the Eighth Congressional dis- 
trict. He has done more to build up residence property than any man 
we ever had. He was always helping some poor man to acquire a home, 
and that portion of Joliet once owned by him is now the loveliest part of 
the city on account of his labors in planting and improving it."* 

His funeral services were beautiful and impressive in the extreme and 
were attended by hundreds of citizens who had learned to love the noble 
example of his life and admire the wide and varied accomplishments of 
the man. 

James H. (1890) was educated at Joliet, studied law, but instead of 
practicing that profession turned his attention to commercial pursuits. 
He was in the real estate business, was secretary and treasurer of the 
Builders' Supply Company, and at the time of his death was township 
school treasurer. He assisted much in completing this record. Dwight 
(1891) resides at Joliet and is engaged in commercial pursuits, etc. 

Samuel (560) was blessed with the strong intellect and sound judg- 
ment characteristic of this branch. In the early autumn of 1834 he trav- 
eled on a prospecting tour through Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Illinois, 
making the journey on foot and probably reaching the present site of Chi- 
cago, at least going it is said thirty miles west of Michigan City, Ind., on 
Lake Michigan. The following spring he located near Oswego, III, but in 
1836 settled at Plainfield and lived there until 1855. He then moved to Peo- 
tone, III, and lived there until a short time before his death in 1887. He 
became quite wealthy and was an excellent type of the American farmer — 
excellent judgment, high principles, keenly interested in worthy public 
affairs, the friend of education and the supporter of all moral move- 
ments. His eldest son John (1141) moved to Minnesota, where he lately 

•From the Joliet Daily Republican and Sun, Oct. 20, 1885. 


resided; he was born near Oswego, 111., reared as a farmer, enlisted at 
Chicago in Company A of a Mechanic Fusileer regiment Sept. 23, 1861, 
but was soon afterward transferred to Company I under Captain Guthrie. 
All were equipped and drilled as infantry. In Dec. 1861, the privates be- 
came dissatisfied with their officers and petitioned the Secretary of War 
to be discharged and the petition was granted and all were mustered 
out Jan. 28, 1862. lie then taught school, learned the carpenter's 
trade, moved to Iowa in 1865, and carried on wagon-making, moved to 
Minnesota in 1875, but in 1880 went to South Dakota and took a home- 
stead, moved back to Minnesota in 1895, and engaged in growing fruit 
and raising poultry, but recently moved to Oregon ; he draws a pension. 
Phebe (1142) remained in Illinois; Emily (1144) and Eunice (1143) 
moved to the Pacific coast; Henry (1146) located near San Antonio, 
Texas, and his present whereabouts are unknown; Francis E. (1147) re- 
sides at Newaygo, Mich.; Caroline (1148) lives at Seneca, Iowa; Ed- 
ward (1150) is located at Briggs, Kansas; William A. (1151) at Wilton 
Center, 111., he prepared for college at Northwestern University; Har- 
riet M. (1152) is at Peotone and Samuel N. (1153) is deceased. All be- 
came good citizens. 

Samuel (244) passed an active, honorable and useful life at Troy, N. 
Y. He was one of the first trustees of the village of Troy. He was 
identified with Hudson river commerce for many years and was captain of 
a sloop. He lived in Troy and reared his family there. Candice (246) 
willed to him her property at her death about 1833. Sarah (561) lived to 
a great age, dying in 1892 aged 93 years. She was a noble woman, a 
Dorcas and an honor to the family name. Her obituary notice said, "Miss 
Goodspeed's entire life is an exemplification of the beauty and inspira- 
tion of true and unostentatious Christianity; her entire thought was for 
others; early in childhood she became a member of the First Baptist 
Church (Troy, N. T.) and ever since has been one of its most active work- 
ers." She was unmarried. Anthony (562) passed his entire life in Troy; 
his daughter Mary (1154) became the wife of J. Crawford Green, a suc- 
cessful merchant of Troy; Harriet K. (1162) who now resides in Troy, 
married Rufus M. Townsend, attorney and U. S. Circuit Court Commis- 
sioner at Troy, who was an officer in the Spanish- American War. Willard 
F. (1158) was in the employ of Green & Waterman, of Troy, for many 
years; on April 25, 1861, he enlisted in the Second Regiment N. Y. V. 
Company E, as musician and served in all its battles and campaigns 
with credit and was honorably mustered out May 26, 1863 ; he died at 
Lansingburg, a suburb of Troy, of congestion of the lungs. John F. (1161) 
was engaged in the furniture business; he devised "Goodspeed's Superior 
Polish" for furniture and was "on the road" a considerable portion of 
his time.

liam Tallman. 

(6k) Tryphena (257) married at Barnstable Nov., 1811, Abram Land- 


era, she probably died early, and he perhaps was the Abram Landers 
who married her sister Ruth, becoming second husband of the latter. 

Philemon (109) was probably a sea-faring man and passed his life 
without noteworthy event at Barnstable; his will was destroyed by fire 
about eighty years ago when a portion of the records at Barnstable was 
burned. Ezra (567) met death by drowning; he and three others at- 
tempted to land from their vessel near Wellfleet, Mass., in a small yawl 
boat during a storm; they capsized in the surf, two were saved and two 
drowned, Ezra being one of the latter. It is said that he served in the 
War of 1812, and that his widow after bis death drew a pension; this 
statement has not been confirmed. His son Captain Ezra (1167) was 
killed on board his vessel in 1869 when on his way from New Orleans 
to Boston while jibing the main sail off the Delaware breakwater. He 
left an estate worth $11,597, which embraced notes of his brothers Joseph 
W. and Samuel A. His property was mostly at Bridgwater whither he 
had recently come from "Wellfleet; his widow Mary was appointed guar- 
dian of her child, Ezra Channing (1938). The estate embraced an in- 
terest in the schooners "Charles A. Jones," "Charles E. Raymond" and 
"A Terrill," in the brig "Josie A. Devereux" and in the packet "Lilla 
Rich." Capt. Joseph W. (1163) followed the sea all his life, and was 
connected with both foreign and domestic lines. He visited all parts of 
the world, and his biography would read like a romance. Samuel 
A. (1165) served in the Union Army as a member of the 36th Mass. V. I.; 
he was mustered in Aug. 13, 1862, as sergeant, promoted second lieutenant 
July 17, 1864, first lieutenant Jan. 3, 1864, and resigned April 22, 1864. 

John (253) was no doubt a sailor, as were nearly all men of this 
branch; little of him is known. His son John (580) went to sea when 
eleven years old and continued thus occupied during the remainder of 
his life. He became captain, visited all lands, and was a great navigator. 
The last known of him was that he took supper at a restaurant in Boston 
on New Year's day 1855; he then disappeared totally and nothing more 
whatever concerning him is known to this day. Freeman (578) also fol- 
lowed the sea; coming up the Atlantic coast from the South, his vessel 
was struck by a hurricane of unusual violence, went down, and not a 
man lived to tell the story. William R. (576) was a ship's carpenter and 
worked at his trade at Little River, Nantucket, Fair Haven, New Bed- 
ford Acushnet and Cotuit. He also worked at times in Mystic, Conn. 
When a young man, he did as all others there did — "went coasting." 
He went on one whaling voyage. His son William F. (1180) is a house 
carpenter; he also went on one whaling voyage in the same ship, which 
sailed from New Bedford. Charles Eliot (1949) is the proprietor of the 


"Goodspeed Book Shop," Boston. Cornelius (247) was apparently a 
farmer of Barnstable and no doubt followed "coasting" to some ex- 
tent in spare time. His homestead appears to have descended to his son 
Abishai (573). The will of the latter is dated June, 187.3. and is on file 
at Barnstable. He was unmarried and left to his brother-in-law Joel 
Hamblin all of his homestead east of the "ditch and river," and to Rachel 
M. Hamblin (probably daughter of Joel) all of the homestead on the 
west side of the ditch. Out of what remained after his debts were paid 
he gave Joel Hamblin $25, Joel's wife Sophia M. (probably his second 
wife) $25, John H. Smith $25, John's wife Emily B. $100, Bennett W. 
Cammett $25, Bennett's wife Elizabeth $100, and Rachel M. Hamblin 
$100. Joel Hamblin was his executor. William H. (1173) conducts a 
restaurant in Boston. 



(5d) JOHN (110). 

JOHN (110) was born at Barnstable, was reared there, and in that 
county married Nov. 19, 1775, Mrs. Thankful (Bangs) Nute; they 
both died at Greenfield, Saratoga County, N. Y., he about 1825 and she 
about 1832; they no doubt had several children; the name of one only 
has been learned — 

(6a) Josiah (259). 

Soon after their marraige John and Thankful moved to Lee, Mass., 
and later to Greenfield where they remained until their respective deaths. 
Thankful 's parents lived in Maine after the Revolution; her first 
husband was Obed Nute whom she bore one son named Obed for his 
father. John lived in Greenfield Township as early as 1794. In that year 
his stock mark is recorded as a "square Crop in the right Ear a slit in 
the eand of the same & Hole through the left." The early records there 
are missing, but in 1820 he was assessed 70 cents on a tract of twenty 
acres valued at $200; this tract was near the present King's Station. 
John continued to be assessed this tract until 1826 when it was returned 
in the name of Thankful Goodspeed, showing that John had died a year 
or two before. The tract continued to be assessed to her until 1833 when 
it was returned in the name of her son Josiah, thus fixing the date of her 
death at 1832. In October 1835 Josiah obtained a judgment of $197 
in the Common Pleas court there against Gideon M. Davison, which was 
satisfied in full in May, 1836. About the same time Isaac Rowland ob- 
tained a judgment of $27.63 against Josiah. In Aug. 1844, he bought of 
Thomas G. "Waterman thirty six acres in the town of Conklin, Broome 
County, N. Y., and a few days later mortgaged the same for $208.85 to 
Maranda Hulett. In 1852 Josiah and his wife Maria conveyed the same 
property subject to the mortgage to Orrin Cady of Chenango, N. Y. No 
further information.

Samuel (112) was a sailor at Barnstable before he went to Vermont. 
It is a tradition that when the Revolution broke out he was away on a 
whaling voyage, and that the captain, on his return with a cargo of oil 
and bone, found Boston in possession of the British and put to sea again 
to save his cargo. It is said that he went to South America or elsewhere, 
Samuel going along, and disposed of his oil. Samuel may have served 
the Colonies as a privateersman near the close of the Revolution. Upon 
his removal to Vermont in 1800 his father John went with him. The lat- 
ter died at Wells, Vermont, May 18, 1799, aged 90 years, 6 months, and 
2 days. On Jan. 23, 1800 Samuel (112) and his wife Sylvia (286) for the 
consideration of $93.29 sold to Asa Jenkins a tract of about twelve acres 
of woodland, situated on the Falmouth road in the town of Barnstable. 
Samuel signed the deed, biit Sylvia made her mark. They also sold 
three or more other tracts in West Barnstable precinct in January and 
March, 1800— about thirty-five acres in all. These sales no doubt sig- 
nalized the departure of Samuel and Sylvia for Vermont. By a deed 
signed Oct. 29, 1824, and recorded at Barnstable, Heman (265) and 
Josiah (267), of Pawlet, Vt., Asa Thompson and Jemima (260) his wife, 
Roswell Clark, Jr., and Rebecca (268) his wife, of Granville, N. Y., 
Eli Jones and Chloe (261) his wife, of Pawlet, and Silas Shepard, Jr., 
and Susanna (263) his wife of Gaylord, Wayne coimty, N. Y., for $100 
from Zenas (262), quit-claimed to him all their right to a tract of land 
in Barnstable, consisting of about six acres and adjoining the lands of 
Chipman and Asa Hinckley "it being all the woodland our father Sam- 
uel Goodspeed died possessed of." 


Zenas (262) was born at Barnstable and was taken to Vermont when 
eleven years old; there he became a farmer and in the end a horse and 
cattle doctor. He made several trips to Barnstable on horseback. He 
was a volunteer soldier in the "War of 1812 and participated in the cam- 
paigns around Lake Champlain, particularly the battle of Plattsburg; 
he died at Pawlet. He passed his life in Vermont. Nearly all his children 
resided in that State, near Pawlet. James H. (1194) lives at Granville, 
N. T. Samuel (589) went West in 1853 and located in Illinois; he fol- 
lowed farming, accumulated a comfortable fortune, has lived a life of un- 
usual uprightness, and is passing his old age at Dwight, 111. Arthur 
Roger (1197) grew up on his father's farm near Dwight; upon reaching 
manhood he engaged in the mail order business and finally moved to 
Dwight in 1886, where he began the publication of "The Agents Direc- 
tory ' ' and ' ' The Note Book, ' ' continuing the same several years with much 
success and advertising widely in newspapers and magazines. Poor health 
compelled him to retire a few years ago ; he is now living at Dwight. Selah 
B. (1195) also lives there. He went west several years ago, attended the 
Normal University at Holton, Kas., taught school with success at several 
places, but finally returned to Dwight. John B. (1198) has the distinction 
of being one of four of the name to serve in the Spanish-American War. 
He enlisted in the Fifth Illinois Regiment, Company B, May 9, 1898, and 
served with honor in all the movements of that command, receiving an 
honorable discharge Oct. 16, 1898; he resides in Chicago. The three sons 
of Samuel (589) are well informed, broad-minded, able in discussion, the 
soul of honor, and their high character is never questioned. 

Heman (265) when a young man went to Madison County N. Y,., and 
worked for Zebulon Douglass on the Erie Canal, and there saw Dewitt 
Clinton throw the first shovelful of earth in that enterprise. Two years 
afterward he went to Niagara County, N. T., and hired out at $8 per 
month to work at farming for Jacob Albright. He continued thus for 
five years and then married Jacob's eldest daughter Louisa, and bought 
a farm of his own (100 acres) near the Albright place on the Holland 
Land Co.'s tract. There all his children were born — about four miles 
north of Lockport. Though only a medium sized man, he became very 
obese in his old age, weighing at one time 363 pounds. 

Hon. Marshall (593) was educated at Yates Academy, New York 
State, learned the nursery business of Newell Farnum; moved to Illi- 
nois in 1849 and taught school in LaSalle county; engaged in the nursery 
business in partnership with Asa Dowling near Mendota ; continued the 
same until 1859 when he moved to Washington coimty, Iowa, where he 
has since resided. There he resumed the nursery business and gradually 
added farming as his boys became old enough to assist. For more than

forty years he took the New York Tribune edited by Horace Greeley ; was 
a wide reader and a firm friend of education; was in abolitionist and cast 
his first presidential vote for the Free Soil ticket in 1848; was a strong 
Prohibitionist and never drank a glass of liquor nor a cup of coffee in hia 
life; reared his family from principle without tea or coffee; took great 
interest in public affairs, particularly politics ; was sent to the Legislature 
twice — 1868 and 1872-3; served three terms as County Supervisor and 
many years as justice of the peace, holding the office at present, though 
82 years old; has practiced law informally for many years, finally was 
admitted to the bar to meet the demand for his services ; notwithstanding 
his age works regularly on his farm and takes as keen an interest in the 
progress of humanity as ever. Thurston V. (1203) possessed great inde- 
pendence of character ; left home at the age of 19 years with but 50 cents 
in his pocket; reached "Wyoming somehow, taught school there, pushed 
on to California, graduated unaided from Cooper Medical College, San 
Francisco; was endowed with a strong, brilliant mind, splendid imagina- 
tion and tremendous energy; excelled in surgery, performing several 
marvelous operations; died in his prime. Leroy C. (1200), Charles 
L. (1205) and Weston A. (1201) have been for many years engaged in the 
publishing business in Chicago; are partly so engaged at the present 
time; the latter was educated at the Iowa State College and the Iowa 
College of Law — is the compiler and publisher of this book. Leroy C. has 
shown unusual capacity for politics and for debate and has been identified 
with a number of sharp contests ; he resides in Minneapolis. Charles L. has 
taken an active interest in secret society work; is an Encampment degree 
Odd Fellow, a Knight of Pythias, a Knight Templar Mason, and a member 
of the Myistic shrine. He has shown great aptitude for ritual work. The 
daughters of Marshall (593) have distingu.ished themselves in scholarship 
and in the profession of teaching. All have a decided literary turn, and 
are experts in methods of instruction and in the government of children. 
Hersalora C. began teaching at the age of sixteen years and has taught con- 
tiniiously ever since. She is one of the few persons in this world whose 
most grievous faults are kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice. 

Ansel (594) left his home in New York in 1846, worked on a farm 
for seven months for $10 per month and saved every cent he earned. 
Then for ten years he helped to build three large vessels at Olcott, N. Y., 
and spent two years in the West. At the commencement of the Panic of 
1857 all his earnings were on deposit in a bank at Lockport, N. Y. He 
withdrew them, and two days later the bank closed its doors. He came 
within two days of ruin. He went to Hartford, Mich., and bought eighty 
acres in the heavy woods for $900, $600 down and the balance in one 
year. He hired ten acres "windrowed," returned to New York and 


worked during 1858 for $20 per month, and in September moved to Mich- 
igan and lived the first winter in a barn and made ready a log house 
18x20 feet. The snow was two feet deep on the level that winter. On 
that place he has lived ever since, except the last few years when he has 
resided in Hartford, retired. At one time he owned 280 acres, but now 
only 210. His property is worth over $30,000, all the result of his sound 
business judgment. He has the respect of everybody who knows him. 
His three daughters were educated at the Normal College, Valparaiso, 
Ind. ; the two eldest live at Hartford and the youngest at Mt. Sterling, 
111. ; they are intellectual and able. 

Herschell (595) learned the carpenter trade at which he excelled. 
He became a well-known contractor and builder at Ypsilanti, Mich. He 
contracted for and erected many fine buildings, among which is the 
State Normal Building at Ypsilanti. He located there very soon after 
his marriage. Later he engaged in mercantile pursuits with his sons at 
Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor, but is now retired from active business. His 
son Delbert C. (1213) now conducts a large general store at Ann Arbor, 
under the title of the Goodspeed Manufacturing Co. ; they make a num- 
ber of useful articles for wear, among which is one which has a large 
sale and was awarded a medal at the World's fair at St. Louis. The three 
boys of Delbert C. have graduated in law at the University of Michigan 
and are now getting started in the practice. Harry L. (1215) a young 
man of great promise died early. John W. (1214) and Theron H. (1216) 
were educated at the splendid schools of Ypsilanti, IMich. They started 
in the retail shoe business in that city in 1876, established a branch at 
Ann Arbor in 1884, and another branch at Grand Rapids in 1893, where 
they moved and still reside. They started without capital, but have 
paid 100 cents on every dollar of indebtedness. They have proved them- 
selves exemplary citizens and excellent business men, now owning and 
operating six retail stores and in addition have large outside interests 
in other branches of industry. Clara Louise (1217) is a graduate of 
Ypsilanti High School and Michigan State Normal School, took a special 
course at the University of Michigan, is a graduate of the Detroit Conser- 
vatory of Music and occupied several important positions as instructor, 
the last being that of assistant supervisor of music in New York City; 
she is a polished, able and brilliant woman. 

Seymour (598) lives on a fine farm near Waverly, Iowa. He moved 
there from New York about 1865 and has become thoroughly identified 
with the affairs of his country and state. Starting with little he has accumu- 
lated a comfortable competence, reared a large family to correct and useful 
lives, is passing a clean and honorable career, and has the respect of all 


who know him. His attractive family are marrying and becoming scat- 
tered. Bertha (1219) lives at Osage, Iowa; Jennie (1220) in New York, 
Nellie (1222) in the West; the others are with their father. Ray (1226) 
and Seymour Jr. (1227) are getting started on their own account. 

Loretta M. (597) resides in Osage, Iowa; her two sons are prominent 
business men of that State. Teresa (600) lives at Brockport, N. Y,. 

Jacob M. (601) received a fair education and in early manhood 
followed mercantile pursuits, a portion of the time in Chicago, and 
afterward in Michigan. Later he studied medicine and graduated in that 
profession and is now engaged in the practice at Corunna, Mich., having 
shown marked skill and ability as a physician. He possesses a strong 
mind, takes great interest in professional and scientific advancement and is 
endowed with the highest principles. 

Theron (602) enlisted Aug. 14, 1862, for three years as a private in 
the Nineteenth Battery, Light Artillery, N. Y. V., at Loekport, N. Y,. ; 
was mustered in at Elmira Oct. 27, 1862, was promoted corporal Dec. 6,

by him through the War for Independence is now in the possession of 
his great grandson Joseph (630), of Duxbury. 

He passed his life at Barnstable ; he occupied the position of constable 
and collector of taxes and other official positions of Barnstable Township 
during the Revolution. He probably farmed, but may also have worked 
at a trade, as for instance carpentering. He died intestate at West 
Barnstable in 1782. The appraisement of his estate was made by Lot 
Nye, Jonathan Bodfish and Francis Wood. His widow was appointed 
administratrix Dec. 1782. Philemon (109), Samuel (112) and Timothy 
(117) were paid out of the estate for services rendered. The court al- 
lowed the widow a sum of money and such personal articles as she might 

Almon (274) left one son who died without issue. In his will of 
June, 1837, he left to his daughter Mary S. Everett $30 ; to his daughter 
Sophia W. (Sophronia) he gave a support out of his estate if she should 
remain single and $30 if she should marry; to his wife Rebecca he gave 

Hon. Warren (COS 


all his indoor movables and a comfortable support during her widowhood, 
to be paid as one of the legacies of the estate ; to his only son Josiah (611) 
he gave all his real and personal estate, subject to the legacies. Nathan 
Smith was his executor. Among the items mentioned in his will were 
"four loads of meadow lying at the Smith's dock, $30 per load, $120." 

Joseph (275) went West iii 1818 and located in the wilderness of 
southeastern Ohio near Athens, and there passed the remainder of his 
days, dying about 1858 and leaving many descendants, several of whom 
have particularly distinguished themselves. He was a farmer and a re- 
spected citizen. Arza M. (1232) entered the Union Army in May, 1861, 
rose steadily through merit from a private soldier to the rank of major, 
was in the Third Ohio Regiment and later in the Fourth West Virginia 
Regiment, bore an unusually able and gallant part in many battles and 
campaigns, and was finally killed in action at Vicksburg, May 19, 1863. 
He became captain July 8, 1861, and major March 14, 1863, his commis- 
sion bearing date May 9, 1863. Had he lived he certainly would have 
become colonel and very probably brigadier general and major general. 
He was undoubtedly one of the most heroic of the Goodspeed name to up- 
hold the Federal cause. None attained a higher rank, except Maj. W. F. 
Goodspeed, late of Columbus, 0.. Maj. Arza M. was educated at the 
Ohio University, at Athens. Joseph M. (1234) was also educated at 
Ohio University and has occupied many high positions of a public char- 
acter with fidelity and ability; he was county superintendent of schools 
for nineteen years; he entered the Union Army as a private and rose 
step by step until he became major of his regiment. He served in the 
Seventy-fifth and the One Hundred and Forty-first Regiments, 0. V. I. 
He entered the service Oct. 21, 1861, as a private of Company E, 75th 
0. V. I., became first lieutenant Dec. 25, 1861, resigned Oct. 6, 1862, en- 
tered the 141st 0. V. I. as adjutant May 2, 1864, and was mustered out 
Sept. 3, 1864, with the rank of major. He is yet living at Athens under 
serious misfortunes. 

David (614) lived to be nearly 88 years old, and Ezra (617) lived al- 
most as long; both were intelligent and prosperous farmers, well known 
and respected. They and the other descendants of Joseph and Sarah 
have left an indelible impress for good on the people of southeastern 
Ohio. They helped materially to advance Ohio from primeval conditions 
to one of the first commonwealths of the United States. 

David Smith (277) was a ship's carpenter. His son David (629) was 
a sailor, was for a number of years first officer on Liverpool and Calcutta 
merchant ships and later was head stevedore of the Boston and Baltimore 
Steam Packet Line at their Boston office. Benjamin (1241) died at the 


Venezuela gold mines whither he had gone to make his fortune. Jo- 
seph (1243) became a skillful and successful speculative and operative 
mason. Roger (1245) followed mercantile purauits in Boston and else- 
where. David S. (1247) conducts a hotel and livery at Lexington, Mass. 
Joseph (630) was a ship-smith, late in life was postmaster at Duxbury, 
was a strong anti-slavery advocate. Benjamin (631) was a ship caulker 
by trade ; he was mustered in May 27, 1861, as a private in Company C, 
First Regiment M. V. I., and saw four years of hard and exacting ser- 
vice; he participated in the first and second battles of Bull Run, South 
Mountain, Fredericksburg and others and was wounded severely in the 
left arm in one of the engagements; while yet in the service he split his 
left knee-pan and was soon afterward discharged, shattered in health 
but undaunted in spirit. He lived for some time with his brother Jo- 
seph, worked in the Oakum Navy Yard, and was finally admitted to the 
Soldiers' Home at Tagus, Me., in 1878. In 1879, while on a visit to his 
brother Joseph, he took his own life during a period of ill-health and 
despondency ; he was unmarried. James Harvey Ralston, son of Eleanor 
"Whitman (619) enlisted July, 1861, in the Fourth Virginia Regiment 
which was composed almost wholly of Ohio men who had hurriedly gone 
out to save "West Virginia from secession. He served from 1861 to 1864, 
and suffered much from exposure and disease in numerous camps, cam- 
paigns and battles. He was mustered in as a private and mustered out as 
first lieutenant. The hardships of his service eventually caused his total 
blindness and cut short his life by many years.

Ang, 19, 1852, Christopher Ellis Mason, he was a native of England, born 
1822, no issue. 

William (114) grew up at Barnstable and followed the sea for many 
years ; he became captain of a vessel and ever afterward was called ' ' Cap- 
tain William." In his old age he told many interesting stories of his ad- 
ventures at sea. He moved from Barnstable to the Township of Lenox, 
Berkshire County, Mass., about 1774, because on Aug. 14, of that year he 
bought of Samuel Smith of Hartwood, same county, for £50, about thirty- 
eight acres on the east bank of the Hoosatonic River adjoining the moim- 
tains, indeed running partly up the same. After his removal to Lenox he 
followed farming; all of his children except the youngest were probably 
born at Barnstable. He served in the Continental Army and his record 
may be seen in the Massachusetts archives. He was a private in Capt, 
Oliver Bildings company, Col. John Brown's regiment, enlisted Sept. 21 
1777, discharged Oct. 10, 1777, service twenty days at the northward 
In Dec. 1792, he bought of Anna Mix of Hartford, Conn., about twenty 
six acres adjoining his home. In August, 1823, he sold to his son William 
Jr., this old homestead of about sixty-four acres on the Housatonic River, 

William (282) was born at Lenox and there grew up and married. No 
doubt his father lived with him in his old age. It appears that imme- 
diately after the death of his father William determined to go west. In 
October, 1824, he sold the old homestead on the Hoosatonic River to 
Benjamin Hunt for $900. At the same time William bought of James M. 
Robbins for $300 about 100 acres in Union Township, Broome County, N. 
Y., the same being a part of Lot 53, of the Boston Purchase. This deed is 
recorded at Binghamton, N. Y., and is dated Oct. 19, 1824; Lucy L., 
daughter of William, witnessed the deed. In Sept. 1830, William and 
Loroamy sold to their elder son Philemon, for the named consideration 
of $800, the last mentioned tract of land — 100 acres in Chenango Town- 
ship. William continued to live in this county until his death in 1870. 

Philemon (635) passed his life in Broome County, living in late years 
at Castle Creek ; part of his old age was passed with his daughter Julia P. 
His son Oliver M. (1249) is a man of prominence in his community; he 
is a Democrat, inclines to the Baptist creed, is a mechanic, and has been 
postmaster at Castle Creek. Several of William's daughters lived in and 
around Binghamton, N. Y. 

Rev. William L. (640) was born in Lenox, Mass., was brought to 
Binghamton in 1824, was educated in the academy at Maine, N. Y., ex- 
perienced religion when sixteen years old and joined the Presbyterian 
church while at school. In 1853 his views changed and he was baptized 
into the Baptist denomination May 22, 1853. He read for the ministry, 
was ordained in 1857, and pursued that calling steadily until he finally 


retired to his farm at Thorn Hill near the close of life. He served 
thirteen different churches, and the good he did, both by precept and 
example, cannot be told in words. He was strong, both in pulpit and 
parish, deeply reverential, with uncommon gifts of heart and mind. 
Thousands remember him with love, respect and reverence. His daughter 
EUena A. (1252) is living in Binghamton; she assisted much in complet- 
ing the record of this branch. No one can look at her portrait without 
seeing kindness, sweetness and intelligence. 

Charles Maurice (1253) when sixteen years old was baptized into the 
Baptist church by his father at Fleming, N. Y. Until the age of seven- 
teen he was educated in the public schools wherever his father located 
as pastor. He then entered Colgate academy at Hamilton, N. Y., but 
serious trouble with his eyes caused him to abandon both a college course 
and the ministerial profession for which he was destined. He taught 
school several winters and worked on farms during summers, and while 
thus engaged reared queen bees which he shipped to all parts of the 
world. In 1879 he began to build up a mail order subscription business 
which has grown to over $30,000 annually. In 1896 he bought eighteen 
acres on the east shore of Skaneateles Lake and fitted the tract for a 
park. In 1902 he began to publish a magazine called "Special Crops" de- 
voted entirely to the culture of ginseng and other medicinal roots and 
herbs and is thus engaged at present.

Josiah (115) and Jemima moved from Barnstable to Wells, Vt., in 
1794; there they lived until their respective deaths in 1826. Their de- 
scendants are noted for their vigor and the men for their strength and 
the women for their beauty. Josiah served as selectman at Wells for 
nine years, beginning in 1798. Their elder son Hon. Ansel (283) be- 
came very prominent at Wells; he served continuously as ToAvn Clerk 
from 1799 to 1845, was justice of the peace for many years, represented 
his district in the Legislature about 1818-20, and was regarded as a model 
of uprightness for the whole community. At his death it was said of 
him. "He was kind, even to a fault; he was one of God's noblest work — 
an honest man." The rectitude of his life is recalled with pride by the 
old citizens at Wells to this day. His daughters without exception were 


distinguished for their rare beauty, sprightliness and intelligence, were 
persistently courted and all finally married. They mostly lived in Ver- 
mont and New York. In 1789 Josiah Marston clothier, John Marston, 
Jr., yeoman, Ansel Goodspeed, cordwainer, and Lydia Goodspeed, wife 
of Ansel, for £12 from Winslow Marston, sold a pew in the West Meeting- 
house "that Nymphas Marston and our honored father I\Ir. Prince Mar- 
ston, late of Barnstable, died seized of." 

Oliver H. P. (646) moved to Sardinia, Western New York, and later to 
Michigan. Oliver's son Oliver H. P. (1257) and grandson Charles 
E. (1972) live at Mt. Pleasant, Mich. John W. (1260) enlisted at Sheldon, 
N. Y., Aug. 14, 1862, in Company D, 136th N. Y. V. I., was mustered in as 
corporal Sept. 25, 1862; was promoted sergeant Feb. 1, 1863, and mustered 
out with his company at Washington, D. C, June 13, 1865. William P. 
(1979), son of George C. (1259), has greatly distinguished himself and is 
the present able editor of the Buffalo Evening News. Vandivere (1263) 
enlisted Aug. 4, 1862, in the 121st N. Y. V. I., at Kiehfield, was mustered 
in as private in Company H, Aug. 23, 1862, promoted sergeant Sept. 14, 
1864, and mustered out June 25, 1865. He lived many years at or near 
Yorkshire, N. Y. Socrates (654) lived many j-ears at Marengo, 111., and 
there his children were born. Riland C. (1265) went to California, became 
manager of the immense and beautiful ranch near Chico, Butte County, 
owned by Judge Orville C. Pratt, of the Twelfth District Court ; he finally 
married Lucy C, daughter of the Judge, a gifted and most fascinating 
woman, under romantic circumstances and after several notable escapades. 
After many years they were divorced, largely upon whimsical grounds. 
The suits of Lucy C. to secure her rights to her father's and mother's 
estates constitute an important episode in the jurisprudence of California. 
She was successful and her children are very wealthy; they failed to 
answer many letters of inquiry. Hiland W. (1269) lives at or near Boone, 
Iowa. Agnes (1266) lives at Creighton, Mo. Prince (647) and Ansel 
(655) passed their lives without noteworthy event in Vermont. 

Josiah (284) passed his life in Vermont; about 1820 he lost much of his 
property by "signing for another," which misfortune obliged his chil- 
dren to take care of themselves at an early age. His sons were particu- 
larly distinguished for their strength, activity, vigor and courage. His 
daughter Caroline was famous for her beauty even in her old age. But 
little concerning his son Clemons (656) could be learned. The descend- 
ants of Albert (1278) and Henry R. (1279) live in Wisconsin. Benjamin 
(657) possessed unusual vitality, living to the great age of about 96 years 
and dying in Chicago. He told the author of this book many interesting 
incidents of his feats, as for instance that one day in his early manhood 
he walked forty miles, danced all the succeeding night and the next 


morning at daybreak cleared over twelve feet at a standing jump on level 
ground. His sons Ira (1280) and John C. (1283) moved first to Illinois 
and later to Iowa ; Ira still lives near Hawkeye, the latter State. John C. 
is passing his old age with his sons Fred C. (2014) and Wilmot I. (2015) 
in Chicago; both of the latter are successful business men. Ira's children 
are in Iowa, South Dakota and Indiana. Ernest (1990) was enrolled as a 
private June 22, 1898, in Company D, Third Wisconsin regiment, to serve 
for two years and was discharged Jan. 16, 1899 ; he participated in the 
expedition to Porto Rico from July to Oct., 1898, and took part in the 
engagement at Coamo and the skirmish at Abonita Pass. His brother 
Merritt C. (1992) enlisted as a private Sept. 14, 1899, in Company A, For- 
ty-fifth regiment U. S. infantry, and was mustered out at he Presidio, San 
Francisco, June 3, 1901 ; he participated in the battle of Montalban, P. I., 
Dec. 27, 1899; in General Wheaton's expedition to Cavite Province Janu- 
ary and February, 1900 ; in the expedition to Nasugba February, 1900 ; in 
General Bates' expedition to Camarines Province February, 1900; in the 
expedition to Iniga February, 1900 ; in the expedition to Buhi March, 1900 ; 
in the expedition to Legaski in March, 1900 ; and in the following engage- 
ments: Adgagman February, 1900, Antipolo March, 1900, twelve engage- 
ments during the expedition to Negasaki, and in the skirmishes at Pa- 
quirum April, 1900, and Tavatara June, 1900. 

All things considered, Anson (662) of this branch was probably the 
most powerful of any of the name, and that is saying a great deal where 
so many men are splendid types of physical manhood. He had not only 
enormous strength, but just as wonderful activity and a courage that 
nothing could daunt — sand, grit, real liking for a physical encounter. His 
claims were not idle boasts, but were largely substantiated by the state- 
ments of several, among whom was Samuel (589) who saw him in many 
"settos" in Vermont. Anson (662) wrote of himself from Healdsburg, 
Cal., under date of April 4, 1890: "When I was ten years old I could 
handle any of the boys three or four years older than myself with ease. 
A young man lived there (Granville, N. Y.) who was the most scienced 
wrestler I ever saw ; he said he would put me under training so that when 
I was twenty I could throw him; he done it to perfection, and when. I 
was sixteen I threw him. The winter I was fifteen years old I averaged 
my two cords of four-foot wood per day. The spi'ing I was sixteen I took 
a notion to see the wild West. I had worked with father at the car- 
penter trade and was pretty handy with tools, so found no trouble in 
earning money, and traveled on foot, or water mostly, always trying my 
muscle in any way for sport. I traveled through Canada and seven 
States in one year. When I got round to Dunkirk, N. Y., there was a 
celebration of the Fourth of July; they got up a wrestle and one man 


threw five meu. He said he could throw any man in the county. I said, 
'I know a boy you can't throw.' He wanted to see the boy. I said, 
'I am the boy, but I am only a boy and a stranger and don't want any 
trouble. I will take hold and throw you one fall and then just as many 
more as you wish.' He accepted and we took hold. I threw him and 
twelve other men and never had a joint brought to the ground. Then a 
young man named Wickwire came to me and wanted me to travel with 
him; said he would bear all expenses and I have half the earnings. He 
asked 'What else can you do?' 'Anji;hing that requires muscle?' I 
traveled three years and wrestled and tried strength with any and every 
one that wished. I never lost but one bet on anything; one man lifted a 
stone off the ground, that I could not lift, but I lifted him and all he 
lifted, on a stick of timber. 

I finally got a letter from my mother and went home. There I found 
a job my friends said I could not get along with ; it was a man who had 
been a terror near the town for fifteen years. There was no comfort or 
pleasure on any public days; he would make it just as disagreeable as 
possible by his meanness. Well, the first time for him to have a tantrum 
was on training day. He started in as usual ; I told my friends I would 
settle him ; they begged me not to try it, as he would kill me, but I went 
for him without one word. In about a minute he sang out 'enough.' 
He and the rest of the crowd were the most surprised set I ever saw. I 
went off, but heard him make some threats; I went back and slapped 
his face and told him if he ever attempted any of his meanness again I 
would punish him just as soon as I could get to him. He was ever after 
as quiet a citizen as we had in town. 

"I had several other settoes of the like in different towns up to 1844. 
Politics that year ran very high. I lived at Granville, N. Y., eleven miles 
from Whitehall the head of Lake Champlain and the canal. We were 
Democrats and the Whigs broke up our meeting there. Then we had a 
meeting at our place; we had some good muscled men in our town and 
about it, and the Whigs at Whitehall said they would come out to the 
meeting and clean us out again. They came — thirty men all on horse- 
back, picked and paid men, the best they could get, dressed in blue jacket 
and red sash, their best man in red jacket and blue sash. We organized 
and they made me captain. I insisted that we should drink no strong 
drink and we didn't. At the meeting both sides behaved themselves, 
and when they prepared to leave our follis said, 'Let's disband.' I said 
' No, these fellows are paid to fight and fight they will : now every man 
of us form in two lines to let them pass through and prepare to do 
your best for fight we must.' Two wagons passed and then the horse- 
men, the captain at the head. When he came in front of me he jumped 


from his horse and every man in an instant was off his horse and off his 
feet too. I clinched my man and threw him and in one-half minute he 
was blind and I not a scratch. The whole thing lasted not two minutes, 
and we were not 'cleaned out' as they termed it. 

"There is one thing: I never sought notoriety as a pugilist, but I have 
felt it a duty to settle a number of ugly quarrelsome bullies by a little 
punishment and one not a year ago and in about six days I will be sev- 
enty-seven years old. "When I was fifteen years old I could and did lift a 
barrel of pork. In 1844 I carried two barrels of flour with a strap over 
my shoulders two hundred yards; also 400 pounds up a long flight of 
stairs with ease, but what I could really lift I do not know. I was never 
outlifted except on the stone. Once four good solid men lifted on a 
boiler and said they could not raise it. I done it easy. I carried a dead 
hog they said weighed 450 pounds. My weight after I became a man was 
190 to 200 pounds. I was never tired until after I was thirty-five years 
old, when I had chills and fever. I drank but little strong drinks, was 
never arrested, never had a law-suit, have tried to live in the world so 
that it should be none the worse for my doing so." 

Many of the Goodspeed men are splendid types of the athlete, and 
many of the women have exceptionally fine figures and graceful car- 
riages. Think of the boy Anson's throwing at the age of seventeen 
years a man who had thrown five other men, and in addition throwing in 
succession twelve other men ! Think of his traveling then for three years 
giving exhibitions of his strength and skill as a wrestler! If he could 
have had the scientific training of today, no man could have mastered 
him. Under modern methods of training he would have been famous as 
a strong man.. As he himself said, he did not know the full extent of his 
strength — had never measured the full power of those enormous muscles 
and that herculean frame of bone and sinew. Herein is given his full 
length portrait. One can imagine, as he stands there leaning on his arm, 
that were those splendid muscles bared, he would resemble the famous 
statute of Hercules leaning on his club. And he possessed courage, not 
of the bully, but of the man who loves law and order. Look at his hand — 
as broad as it is long, double jointed and capable of striking down an ox. 

Ira M. (660) moved at an early date to Central Indiana and there 
died when his children were small; they thus became scattered and no 
record was kept. His son William Henry (1294) who served in the Union 
Army also died when his children were young and they were reared by 
others; records are lacking. He enlisted July 29, 1862, as a private in 
Company I, 134th N. Y. V. I. at Schenectady, and was discharged in 
April, 1863 ; he enlisted again Aug. 15, 1864, in Company G, 91st N. Y. V. 
I., and was discharged May 30, 1865. Owen (661) removed to Columbus, 


Wis., and is yet living aged about 96 ; he is still quite active and hearty. 
Alvin (287) moved to Wisconsin and reared his family at or near Elk- 
horn ; his descendants are there yet. They neglected to answer inquiries. 
His great grandson Alvin Earl (2031) is connected with Carson, Pirie, 
Scott & Co., of Chicago.

Timothy (117) of Sandwich, "yeoman," in his will signed 1833, made

each, also his mariner's books and instruments to be divided equally. 
To his son Levi he gave the use and improvement of the westerly half of 
his land, the use of one half of the barn so long as Sarah, the mother, 
should live, with the condition that he should provide her with wood, 
hay, etc. To his son Martial he willed his watch (after the death of Sarah) 
and his gun. He gave $10 to each of his daughters Tryphosa Atkins, 
Mary Lawrence, Sarah Blossom and Rhoda Fish. To his wife Sarah he 
gave the use and improvement of all his lands, woodland and meadow 
and the use and improvement of one-half of his residence (the easterly 
half) and one-half of the barn, all household furniture, cow, sheep and 
other live stock so long as she should remain his widow. He gave his 
grandson Luther (672) his "king's arm gun." To Levi and Martial he 
gave all the residue of his estate, real, personal and mixed. They were 
his executors. Upon the death of Sarah his widow in 1836, she left all 
her estate to her four daughters, but they were required to pay each of 
her sons (Timothy, Levi, Joseph and Martial) one dollar. Timothy and 
his wife Sarah passed their lives at Barnstable ; he served the Colonies in

Stephen I. (14114) 


Levi (293) was a farmer of Barnstable county, his life was uneventful. 
His son George M. (670) was born in Barnstable, was captain of a boat 
running from Boston to New Orleans early in the fifties, married in New 
Orleans, had yellow fever but survived, did not enter the Civil War on 
either side, his descendants live in New Orleans. 

Hon. Levi Lincoln (673) became one of the most prominent of the 
Goodspeed name. He was wholly self-made, possessed exceptional ability, 
was the soul of honor, was dignified and singularly kind hearted, and 
at his death in 1879 was the most eminent citizen of his county and 
one of the ablest and most eminent of his State. He was an officer of 
the City Reform School, at South Boston, from 1850 to 1853; master 
of the State Workhouse at Bridgewater from 1853 to 1871; one of 
the Trustees of the State Reform School at Westboro 1870-1 ; member of 
the Governor's Council in 1866-7; president of the Barnstable Agricul- 
tural Society 1871 ; inspector of the State Prison at Charleston 1872-73 ; 
member of the Legislature 1874-75, serving as chairman of the Committee 
on Charitable Institutions in 1875, and was high sheriff of Barnstable 
County, which office he died while holding. His character and trust- 
worthiness were never called in queation and were maintained with in- 
creasing distinction to the day of his death. Charles F. (1320) received a 
liberal education and engaged in banking which occupation he has fol- 
lowed to the present time. He is now connected with the Metropolitan 
National Bank of Boston. He is a member of the Second Congregational 
Church of Dorchester and is the founder and leader of a bible class of 
about ninety young men. George M. (1322) was educated at the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology. Immediately after graduation he en- 
tered the service of the United States Steel Corporation at McKeesport, 
Pa., where he is now employed at the head of the chemical department. 

Joseph (298) moved from Barnstable to Cayuga County, N. T., by or be- 
fore 1828, locating near Cato ; there Joseph Martial and perhaps others of 
his children were born. On Oct. 22, 1828, Joseph bought of Amelia Youle 
for $350, fifty acres in Cato Township. In 1833 Joseph and his wife 
Sarah B. sold for $200 a tract of land in Cato Township. They also sold 
land for $1,525 in 1836 "subject to mill privileges." In 1836-7 he moved 
to Michigan and there he and the most of his family have died. He was 
treasurer of his township and an upright man. His wife Sarah Baker 
Fish was a Nantucket girl; they were married on that island and lived 
there the first three years of their married life ; they resided in New York 
for eight years; he was a Whig. 

Two of his sons served gallantly in the Union Army. Joseph M. (679) 
was in Kansas during the border war, enlisted in the Free State ranks 
and served under Stevens who, later, was hung for complicity in the in- 


surreetion of John Brown at Harper's Ferry, Va. On Sept. 6, 1861, he 
enlisted as a private in Company B, Ninth Kansas Cavalry and did patrol 
duty in Kansas and Missouri until May, 1862, and later in Colorado and 
Wyoming guarding emigrant and mail trains from the Indians. He then 
saw service at Kansas City, Fort Smith and Little Rock. On Aug. 25, 
1864, he was severely wounded by a musket ball in the right cheek, neck 
and shoulder in a fight with General Shelby's command northwest of 
Little Rock. He was discharged in November, but April 6, 1865, re- 
enlisted for one year in Company A, Eighth Reg. U. S. Vet. Vols. He did 
guard duty after this until mustered out in the fall of 1865. He returned 
to Little Prairie Ronde, Mich., engaged in farming and general store- 
keeping and was for many years postmaster at that place. He drew a 
liberal pension for his infirmities. Edwin C. (682) enlisted Aug.. 2, 1862, 
in Company K, First Regiment of the famous Berdan's U. S. Sharp- 
shooters and served in the Army of the Potomac until the surrender of 
Lee at Appomattox. He participated in the battles of South Mountain, 
Antietam, Blackburn's Ford, Fredericksburg, Chaneellorsville, Manassaa 
Gap, Mine Run and Locust Grove, sustaining in the latter action a severe 
gunshot woiuid in the left forearm. After his recovery he rejoined his 
company in front of Petersburg and remained with it until the overthrow 
of the Confederacy. After the war he farmed at Little Prairie Ronde, 
Mich. ; he drew a pension. 

Martial (300) is said to have been a model of manly grace and 
beauty — a veritable Apollo, magnificently proportioned and with a man- 
ner so exquisite and a personality so fascinating that few women could 
resist his wooing. Being the "baby" of the family and possessing such 
gifts, he was spoiled even as a child. Flattery and homage no doubt 
made him vain and fickle. He married a most estimable woman, but the 
constancy and exactions of married life proved distasteful, so he went to 
New Orleans, then one of the most brilliant cities on the Western hemi- 
sphere, famous for the beauty of its women and the chivalry of its men. 
There he found opportunity for the display of his personal attractions. 
Among the Spanish cavaliers and the French hothouse exquisites of the 
Southern metropolis he doubtless found abundant food for his vanity and 
pride. No doubt also his personal attractions were duly appreciated in 
the grand drawing-rooms of the Southern aristocrats. He is said to have 
married at New Orleans, though it is not known that he secured a 
divorce from his wife in Massachusetts. His fate is unknown. Traces of 
his wife and children in Massachusetts could not be found. They are 
said to have lived near Henry Lawrence who married Mary (290).

Jabez (122) lived and died at Barnstable; he followed the sea and 
but little of him is luiown; no doubt he led a quiet and iiueventful life. 
The death of Nathan (303) in 1797 made it necessary to bind out his chil- 
dren ; this scattered them — forever separated some of them and threw 
all on their own resources. A bound boy in those days usually had a hard 
time of it and a bound girl worse. Too often they were made drudges 
in their master's families and not infrequently were made to feel the 
sting of charity mincingly and tauntingly bestowed. The descendants 
of several of these children point with indignation to the wrongs thus 
suffered under that early form of child slavery. Elijah (693) was so 
badly treated that he ran away at the age of about ten years, secured a 
berth on some ship as cabin-boy and for the next sixteen years followed 
the sea, becoming master of his vessel. He moved to Ohio about 1825 
became a farmer and died there respected and lamented. He was an 
Abolitionist and kept a station of the famous "Underground Railroad," 
assisting scores of runaway slaves on their way to Canada. His daugh- 
ter Harriet (1367) yet lives at an advanced age at Concordia, Kas. 
She has reared a large family to lives of usefulness, and has the assurance 
that her own life has not been in vain. She furnished much valuable in- 
formation concerning this branch, and forwarded the dagiierreotype of 
her father and mother from which their group portraits for this work 
were taken. Alvin (1371) is a prosperous farmer near Knoxville, Iowa, 
where he moved in 1867 and bought 420 acres. Olive (570) was reared on 
a farm in Mass. and died in Ohio. 

Solomon (687) was a ship's carpenter; he moved to Athens county, 0., 
in 1818 and followed farming the rest of his life and died in 1842. He 
was kind-hearted, charitable, and a deacon in the Presbyterian church 
there. When Solomon moved to Ohio, his brother Nathan (692) and his 
mother went with him and Elijah and Jane soon followed : perhaps they 


may have moved there as early as 1817. Thomas, Jabez and Rebecca re- 
mained in the East. All of the sons of Nathan (303) i. e. Solomon, Thom- 
as, Jabez, Nathan and Elijah, foUovped the sea at first, but later all be- 
came farmers. It is said that the father of Thankful Thomas died in an 
English prison ship during the Revolution. 

Jabez (690) lived many years at or near Rochester, Mass. In his will 
dated at Mattapoisett Aug. 2, 1859, he gave to his wife Malintha all of 
his real estate during the rest of her life ; at her death it was to pass to 
his daughters Sarah D. Jones, Susan T. Taber, and Rebecca J. Graham. 
Under date of Aug. 7, 1818, Thomas Smith, painter, of Rochester, for 
$458, sold to Jabez (690) shipwright, of Rochester, a house and land 
in the village of Mattapoisett next to Edward Sherman. Thomas (688) 
brother of Jabez witnessed this instrument. In 1829 Jabez paid $6.20 
for a pew, which had previously been held by Seth Ames, in the church 
at Rochester where Rev,. Mr. Young preached. The same year Jabez 
bought a tract at a place called Mead 's Island for $275. 

Thomas (1346) lived many years at Isadore, Mo. Descendants of 
Daniel (1360) live at Victoria, 111. Ira's (1362) descendants live near 
Bluffton, Ind. Joseph's (1363) sons are in the railway service as passenger 
conductors, with headquarters at Kansas City, Mo. ; his eldest son Albert 
I. was crushed to death by the ears. Mathias (1364) is a prosperous 
farmer and stock raiser of Tracy, Iowa ; his descendants live in different 
parts of Iowa, James (1365) entered the Union Army, Company D, 75th 
0. V. I., Oct. 21, 1861, was appointed Corporal Oct. 6, 1862, and was killed 
at Gettysburg, July 2, 1863. George E. (2060) was for many years a mer- 
chant at Jacksonville, 0. William W. (2054) lived many years at Buch- 
tel, 0., but recently has lived at Columbus, 0. In both places he has been 
justice of the peace and a man of influence in his community; his son 
Edward Francis (2390) graduated from the Cincinnati Law School in 
1893. Several of this branch are Catholics. 

Nathan (1339) was brought to Ohio, Athens County, when he was 
five or six years old. He married in Ohio, and was captain in the mi- 
litia of that State. He died of yellow fever on board vessel en route from 
New Orleans in 1840. His son Hiram M. (2053) was born in Athens 
County. Immediately after his father 's death he was taken to Indiana and 
there grew to manhood on a farm. In 1861 he enlisted in Company C, 
Thirtieth Ind. Infty., served three years in the armies of the Ohio and 
Cumberland, participating in all engagements in which his regiment 
fought; was captured at Stone River (Murfreesboro) and sent to Libby 
prison, was exchanged the following June, rejoined his regiment and 
took part in all actions until July 4, 1864, when at Marietta, Ga., in the 
charge upon the enemy by a picked detachment of 400 men, he was shot 


through the right ankle, necessitating the amputation of his leg below 
the knee the same day. He was sent to the hospital at Nashville, but re- 
joined his regiment in October and was mustered out at Indianapolis 
late in 1864. He was commissioned Postmaster at Ligonier, Ind., by 
President Lincoln in Dec, 1864, and served with credit as such for twen- 
ty-two years. He now resides at Ligonier and draws a pension. 

Allen (1344) entered the Union Army Dec. 14, 1861, was sergeant of 
Company E, Seventy-fifth 0. V. I., participated in all its battles and cam- 
paigns, until his discharge for disability Aug. 30, 1862, and drew a lib- 
eral pension for his disabilities. In early manhood he was a Demo- 
crat, but later became a strong Republican with active abolition tend- 
encies. His first vote was east for Martin VanBuren. His sister 
Chloe (1336) lived with him until her death; she assisted much in com- 
pleting the records of this branch.

Benjamin (125) went from Barnstable to Nottingham West, now 
Hudson, N. H., and married. About five months after the birth of his son 
John (305) he determined to return to Barnstable to visit his relatives 
and accordingly started on foot, bidding his wife good bye and expecting 
to return in a few weeks at most. Nothing of him was ever heard after 
he left; he disappeared completely and his fate is unkno\vn. A week 
or two after his departure the body of an unknown man answering his 
description was discovered in a mud hole on the road from Boston to 
Barnstable ; this body is supposed to have been his, though this is purely 
conjectural. His two children were reared in New Hampshire, the son 
John by William Hills, brother of Hannah the mother. Benjamin thua 
died before the Revolutionary War. 

John (305) grew up in the family of William Hills, and after his mar- 
riage located in Litchfield where he became a useful and exemplary 
member of society and the father of twelve children. About July 10, 
1833, he fell from a load of hay and so injured his spine as to produce 
almost complete paralysis of his entire body. He died ten days later 
from the effects of the accident. He was a Baptist and served in many 
official positions with credit, among them being that of selectman. 

The children of John (305) showed his good qualities even in a more 
marked degree. Hon. John Jr. (695) was a farmer, a Universalist, a 
Democrat, and held many offices, the highest being that of represent- 
ative to the Legislature in 1872-73. He was stout, weighing about 200 
pounds, strong, and had very fair complexion and blue eyes. He passed 
his life at Litchfield, dying at the age of eighty-six years. He possessed 
a strong mind and could have gone much higher among his fellows, but 
for his unpretentious nature. 

Calvin (697) in early life taught school, worked in the boot and shoe 
factories of Lowell, Lawrence and Manchester, but finally became rail- 

i;"si.>U.(211G) Daisy M.(L'll.j) 


way baggage master at Salem, Lowell and elsewhere, and so continued 
until his death. He was a moral man of sound sense, a Baptist and a 
Republican. His son John C. (1379) was born in Lowell, was in the milk 
business, then followed painting, and at the age of 28 years began rail- 
roading which he has followed ever since. He was with the Vermont 
Central and later with the Boston and Maine. He was an engineer and 
during the Rebellion served in the Government Secret and Signal service. 
He has lately retired from active business. His son Ernest W. (2089) is 
conducting a furniture and house furnishing store at Salem. He possesses 
high musical gifts. 

Celia E. (1378) received an excellent education, finishing in the Theo- 
logical seminary at Concord ; indeed her studies were continued while she 
was teaching two years at Salem and four years in the Bunker Hill 
Grammar School. She possessed rare powers of poetic expression, and as 
she was deeply religious directed her talent to religious subjects. Her 
husband wrote, "Her writings never seemed to interefere with her 
ordinary duties. She wrote very rapidly and seldom reviewed anything 
she wrote ; a thought or theme would take possession of her and drive her 
to her pen and in a half hour she would have a poem ready for the press." 
She contributed to some thirty journals as "Celia" and composed about 
250 poems she preserved in a scrap-book but which she did not have pub- 
lished except in various journals. Her life was beautiful and bright with 
practical Christianity and heavenly sunshine and hope. The following 
are a few scattering fragments of her work : 

"Was it well to wound the friend? 
Love had bound you very near, 
Love had made you very dear ; 
Shall it end?" 

' So slight a thing as this ; Shall you 
The careless, uttered speech 
Allow to over-reach 

Your loving true?" 

'Is it well? Life is brief at very best; 
Have you time for tears and frets ? 
Have you time for these regrets? 
Let them rest." 


"You tell me that the field of song 

Is full of songsters now ; 
That many a one has waited long 

For fame to crown his brow ; 
That hearts and heads which passing years 

And deeper thought confess 
Await with even trembling fears 

The hope their hearts express ; 
But tell me, is there not a way by which some gleaning Ruth 
May go around among the sheaves and find some grains of truth?' 

"She is gone from the hearts that loved her best, 
Gone from the house her presence blest, 
Gone from a happy household band, 
Gone, we trust, to a better land, 
Gone, forever gone." 

Hon. Warren (698) early engaged in farming and brick making, liv- 
ing for a few years after his marriage at Wentworth, N. H., but passing 
the rest of his life, after his father's death, on the old farm. He was 
blessed with an excellent mind, sound judgment and high integrity, and 
took great interest and an active part in all worthy public movements. 
He was a Democrat, held all the town offices in succession, was elected 
justice of the peace in 1847, and was sent as representative to the Legis- 
lature first in 1846-47 and again in 1870-71. He exerted praiseworthy 
influence on local and moral citizenship. In a period when so many 
drank, he is said never to have touched a drop of spirituous liquor in his 
life. In all respects he was an honor to the name and a fine type of the 
Christian American citizen. He lived nearly to the age of eighty-eight 
years. The old house in which he lived so long was built in 1800 and 
stands on the green banks of the Merrimack River, surrounded with 
noble elms, about three miles from Nashua, N. H. His daughters married 
wealthy men. John W. (1380) went West, engaged in railroading, but 
since 1869 not a word has been heard of him. Sylvanus P. (1383) was a 
very superior young man, with high ability and an unusually fascinating 
and magnetic personality. At the age of sixteen he became clerk in a 
dry-goods store in LoAvell, being advanced a little later through sheer 
merit to a partnership with his wealthy employer and finally marrying his 
employer's daughter. Unfortunately, he passed away early in life. 

Sarah A. (1382) passed much of her life on the old farm, her husband 
having bought a portion of the same. Olivia B. (699) joined the First 


Baptist Church at Litchfield in 1827; she lived with her husband over 
fifty years. He died two months after they had celebrated their golden 
wedding, after which she lived with her children on the farm and in 
Winchester. She was an earnest and consistent Christian to the last. 
James P. (701) was an upright citizen, a Universalist, a Democrat, and 
was interested in a variety of pursuits. His son James 0. (1395) became 
a molder by trade. His son Henry T. (1396) is a great reader, a strong 
and sincere Methodist, a strict Prohibitionist, a man of clean heart and 
pure ideals, and freely furnished a great deal of valuable information for 
this work. After the death of her second husband, Mary Ann (705), 
through court procedure, resumed the name of her first husband in order 
that she might be known by the same name as her son. 

Flavins J. (1390) was born at "Wentworth, Me., was taken to Groton, 
N. H., when five years old and to Pelham three years later. He was edu- 
cated in the common schools till sixteen years old, then entered the quar- 
termaster's department of the Union Army and went South, but re- 
turned in six months, farmed a while and worked in the woolen mills 
of Massachusetts and Maine. At the age of twenty one years he 
accepted the position of overseer of finishing in a woolen mill at Hart- 
land, Me., but in 1871 hired a small woolen mill in the same place and be- 
gan wool carding, manufacturing cloth and knitting yarns and con- 
tinued till 1881. He then promoted the construction of a large woolen 
mill at Madison, Me., and was made superintendent and agent thereof. 
Later this mill employed 250 hands. In 1890, tired of working for others, 
he bought the Fernald Woolen Mills, of Wilton, Me., which at that time 
contained twenty looms. His two sons coming on the scene of action, 
he built a large addition to the mill and incorporated, keeping the estab- 
lishment in the family. They have grown steadily until in July, 1906, 
they were operating 106 looms and employing 160 hands with a pay roll 
of $5,500 per month. He says of himself "I have always paid 100 cents 
on the dollar; was never in jail and never under arrest." He is an Odd 
Fellow and a Methodist. Frank 0. (2095) was educated in the public 
schools of Madison, Kent's Hill Seminary, Me., and the Philadelphia 
School of Technology. George P. (2096) was educated in the public 
schools of Madison and Wilton, Me., was fitted for college at Wilton 
academy, and graduated from Bowdoin in 1900. They have proved them- 
selves excellent business men and able assistants of their father. They 
are known as the Wilton Woolen Company.

Elisha (126) in early life was a sailor at Barnstable. He served 
the Colonists in the Revolution. He was a private in Micah Hamblen's 
company, enlisted July 7, 1775, service to Dec. 31, 1775, in defense of sea 
coast, roll sworn to in Barnstable county; also Capt. John Grannis Com- 
pany, marched Feb. 14, 1776, service to Aug. 31, 1776, stationed at Eliza-

*The paternal line of Levi Spaulding was Benjamin (5), Benjamin (4), Ed- 
ward (3), Benjamin (2), Edward (1). Levi served in the War of 1812 as a 
lieutenant of the Fourth Company, Fourth Begiment, Vermont troops. 


blen's company of matrosses, Col. Nathaniel Freeman's refriment, ser- 
vice three days on an alarm at Falmouth in March, 1779; also in same 
company and regiment, service two days, marched on alarms at Falmouth 
in April, May and Sept. 1779. He was placed on the pension rolls July 28, 
1820, his pension of $96, per annum to date from March 4, 1819, In 1835 
he was yet living in "Washington County, Vt., aged eighty-four years. He 
at that time had received a total of $1,440 for disabilities incurred as a 
private in the Continental Line of Massachusetts. He seems to have 
married at Barnstable, yet all of his children were born in Vermont. 
After leaving the coast he became a farmer, and lived to be 88 years 

Of his children Samuel (306) was a farmer and a useful citizen; he 
was a Methodist and led an uneventful life. Gideon Gilbert Sr. (308) 
is said to have died in Canada; very little of his descendants could be 
learned. Gideon Gilbert Jr. (706) was a man of good mind and irre- 
proachable character; held in succession nearly all the town offices with 
fidelity and credit, helped to cut the timber for the first church in War- 
ren, Vt., was a Methodist, as were nearly all the older members of this 
branch, and followed the occupation of farming. His brother Stephen 
(708) was a farmer. Stephen I. (1404) is a merchant; Myron R. (1410) 
a carpenter and joiner. 

Elisha (714) enlisted at "Warren, Vt., Sept. 12, 1861 and was mustered 
in Oct. 15, 1861, Company G, 6th Vt. V. I. as a private; his regiment 
participated in twenty-three engagements, among which were Antietam, 
Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, "Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor and 
Petersburg. Hiram (715) enlisted in the same company and regiment as 
Elisha did March 25, 1862, was mustered in April 12, 1862, was promoted 
corporal, transferred to the Vet. Res. Corps April 20, 1864, and dis- 
charged as lieutenant March 25, 1865; he participated in the various 
battles and campaigns in which his regiment was engaged. Both Elisha 
and Hiram were farmers and led exemplary Christian lives. 

Rev. Frank Lincoln (1416) was born at Moretown, but after his sixth 
year grew up at "Warren. He was fitted for college at Montpelier, gradu- 
ating after a three years' course from the Methodist Episcopal Seminary 
there in 1883. The same year he entered Boston University School of 
Theology and in due time graduated therefrom. He entered Harvard 
College and in 1890 received his diploma from that institution. Previous 
to this event, June, 1887, he was ordained and placed in charge of the 
Congregationalist Church of Mattapoisett, and later had charge of con- 
gregations at Hingham and Amherst, receiving his appointment to the 
latter in 1892, with a salary of $3,000 per year. His last charge, to which 
he was appointed in 1894, is the First Church of Christ (Congregational) 

JiidsonM.d.-ilOl JohnC. 


of Springfield, Mass., the largest of that denomination in New England. 
His ministry is distinguished by the strength, freshness and eloquence of 
his discourses, by his interesting and instructive lectures on a great va- 
riety of subjects, including his observations in foreign lands, where he 
has traveled, and his reflections thereon, the singular and unusual power 
he wields over his immense congregation, and his consistent piety and 
pure character. He is known throughout New England and is extreme- 
ly popular. His church was organized in 1837, has a membership of 
1,200, being one of the ten largest in America. He is a regular preacher 
at several colleges, is a Doctor of Philosophy, has traveled much in Eu- 
rope, Egypt and Palestine, preaches in London in summers, and has 
held many important offices in connection with Congregationalism. In 
the ten years during which he has presided over his church at Spring- 
field, he has added over 700 to the membership. The main building is 
over eighty-five years old. Jenny Lind sang in it, Louis Kossuth deliv- 
ered an address there, and within its walls the body of John Quincy 
Adams lay in state. 



(5h) NATHAN (129). 

NATHAN (129) was probably born and reared in Barnstable; he is 
mentioned in his father's will; it is not recorded or known 
that he married and left descendants; his record seems to end 
with his service in the Revolution; however he may have married and 
left descendants. Or what is more probable he may have lost his life in 
the service of the Revolutionists ; this conclusion seems reasonable owing 
to his complete disappearance near the close of the war. He was a private 
in Massachusetts in Capt. Ebenezer Jenkins' company, Col. Freeman's 
regiment, service eight days, on an alarm at Falmouth and Dartmouth, 
Sept. 6, 1778, roll dated Barnstable; also in Capt. Micah Hamblen's com- 
pany, Lt. Col. Hallett's regiment, enlisted Aug. 12, 1780, discharged Oct. 
30, 1780, service two months and twenty days, travel included, at Rhode 
Island, company detached from militia to reinforce Continental Army for 
three months.

David (132) served with distinction in the Revolution. He was a pri- 
vate in Capt. John Grannis' company, enlisted June 1, 1776, service two 
months and six days, his company was stationed at Elizabeth Islands for 
the defense of the sea coast, reported "listed out" Aug. 7, 1776, roll dated 
Tarpaulin Cove and sworn to in Barnstable county; also in Capt. Eben. 
Baker's company. Col. Freeman's regiment, marched Oct. 4, 1777, service 
twenty-eight days, to Tiverton, Rhode Island, on a secret expedition; 
also in Capt. Jacob Lovell's company. Col. Freeman's regiment, service 
six days, on an alarm at Bedford, Dartmouth and Falmouth in Sept. 
1778. He grew up at Barnstable, married there, and soon after the Revo- 
lution, the exact date not having been learned, moved to Lee, Mass. In 
early life at Barnstable he had followed the sea. He may have located 
on land at Lee under a military warrant. He probably died at Ithaca, 
N. Y., but may have died in Chenango County, N. Y. In May, 1796, while 
at Lee, he sold twenty acres in that town adjoining the town of Beckett 
"on the brook from Greenwater pond" for $80, and the instrument was 
signed by his wife Naomi. 

Anthony (314) was born and reared at Barnstable, and when a young 
man went with his parents to Lee, Mass. A little later he went to Ithaca, 
N. Y., and there married, but upon the death of his wife he returned 
to Lee, and there married his second wife Rebecca the daughter of John 
and Desire Freese of Berkshire Coimty, Mass. In 1792 Anthony bought 
of Caleb West, of Lee, a tract of about fifteen acres "on the road from 
Beckett to Stockbridge" adjoining the farms of Lemuel and Thomas 
Gifford, deceased. In 1796 Anthony 'yeoman" sold this tract to Jede- 
diah Crocker. In 1809 Moses and Catherine Barnum, for $350, sold to 
Rebecca Goodspeed, wife of Anthony, a tract of about ten acres "in that 
part of the Town of Lee known and Called the Hoplands. " Moses and 
Catherine Barnum were the parents of Desire Freese, mother of Rebecca. 
In 1811 Anthony and Rebecca, for $450, sold twenty acres adjoining the 
lands of John Freese, Jr., William Merrell, Abijah Merrell and Enoch 
Garfield, to Sylvanus Hulett, Samuel Hulett and Horatio G. Brown. In 
1810 John and Desire Freese sold to Rebecca three tracts "which were 
heretofore called Great Barrington hoplands." These tracts had fallen 
to Desire in the settlement of the estate of her father Moses Barnum. 


In 1812, Anthony and Rebecca sold to Abner Crosby a tract in the hop- 
lands. In 1813 Anthony bought of William Hulett a small tract in Lee 
"adjoining Hatter's shop." In 1817 he sold to Abijah Merrell, Jr., a 
tract adjoining Merritt Ingersoll. In 1826 Curtis and Sarah Bullard, of 
Hinckley, Medina County, Ohio, for $166, sold to Anthony of Lee, a 
tract in the latter town near David Ingersoll, B. W. Freese and Thomas 
Crosby. Anthony probably died at Lee. He was a Congregationalist 
and a reputable citizen. 

Martin Lewis (720) was born at Lee, moved to Ohio in 1834, thence to 
Bureau County, Illinois, in 1840, and later to Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa. 
He was a farmer. Before his death at Lehigh, Iowa, Nov. 1892, he took 
much interest in the preparation of these records. His son Alvin H. is 
a prominent auctioneer and stock dealer of Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa; 
he has made an abimdance of money, but is too generous hearted to retain 
much of it. George B. (1422) brother of Alvin H. was murdered in Mis- 
souri in 1869 ; he was shot, robbed and his body was concealed in a fallen 
tree-top ; no trace of his murderer was ever found. 

Bert Alvin (2107) is different from many of the Goodspeeds. At 
present he is State's Attorney of Cass County, Iowa, with residence at 
Atlantic. To show his characteristics nothing better can be done than 
to quote from his own breezy, audacious, off-hand and able letters, as fol- 
lows: "I fear you have asked for something that it will be almost 
impossible for me to furnish at this time as I am trying to get a suf- 
ficient uTimber of criminals of this domain relegated to the seclusion of 
durance vile to enable me to join my wife, who is in Colorado awaiting 
my coming, before proceeding on a trip through the "West, with the 
design of landing eventually at the Lewis and Clark Exposition. By the 
way, I have been in the toils of married life for three years now and 
have no children as we live in a poor neighborhood, so it seems my wife 
and I represent two extremes and I have sent her West in the hopes that 
the climate may start something, as I cannot bear to think that I am so 
slow when most of the tribe get them nine months after the light goes 
out. Well, I followed the vocation of the rustic farmer for the greater 
part of my early life, until it was determined I was too blooming shift- 
less to make that a success, when I came to live in this city, after which 
time I was mostly engaged in fistic encounters with those who were ob- 
servant enough to see the mark of the Yap on my mug. After I had suc- 
ceeded in punching the heads off from some of them, I looked for greater 
and more lucrative fields and landed in a barber shop at the age of fif- 
teen, which trade I followed for about thirty minutes or until my father 
caught me there, after which for a short time I was engaged in the busi- 
ness of extracting boots from the rear extremities ; but he soon repented 


upon discovering that I had quietly folded my tent and sought more 
congenial fields where there were less boots ; so I landed in Ogden, Utah, 
at the ripe age of sixteen, without money or friends, and lived on snow- 
balls and scenery until I secured employment in another barber shop and 
remained there until I became a full fledged tonsorial artist with lard 
on my hair, bay rum on my beard and the usual happy appetite for 
booze and could run as windy a whizzer on the fair sex as the average 
barber. I soon tired of this and came back to good old Iowa, the land 
of Indian corn and good looking women (corn-fed), and in the fall of 
1892 I entered the State University of Iowa, and in 1896 slipped under the 
canvas for a sheepskin and returned to Atlantic, where I immediately 
plunged into the political field and was most gloriously peeled for the of- 
fice I now occupy — yes, I lost by six votes in the convention, after having 
spent every cent my father-in-law and I possessed to pay political debts. 
But I was soon ready to return the compliment of some of the dear fel- 
lows who had skinned me, opened up my abandoned office, made money, 
got married luckily, tried office hunting again, succeeded, was elected 
district attorney, and am busy now twisting the tail of any old criminal 
that crosses the line, horse thieves and others too numerous to mention, 
happy and darn glad of it. I have just touched the high spots, rest not, 
worth telling. From the way you hang on and persist in getting what 
you want, I am forced to the conclusion that we must be related, as the 
Goodspeed family here are noted for getting what they go after if it 
takes all summer. I naturally suppose the next thing in order will be to 
buy the book and discover for the first time the number of Goodspeeds 
who have been hung for horse stealing." 

In Aug. 1892, Sarah F. (725) unmarried, made her will at Lee, Mass. 
Her personal estate was valued at $2,286, and her real estate at $4,000. 
It was mainly left to her nephews and nieces. Of the other children of 
Anthony (314) Rebecca moved to Illinois, and there died; Cynthia lived 
in New York and Emily in Massachusetts, though not far apart.

Abner (135) was born and reared at Barnstable and married there; 
soon after marriage he no doubt moved to Lee, Mass., where his children 
were probably born. He served the Colonies in their struggle for inde- 
pendence. He was a private in Capt. Micah Hamlen's company. Col. 
Jonathan Reed's First Regiment of Guards, which served from April 9, 
1778, to July 6, 1778, on a campaign of two months and twenty-six days 
to Cambridge. He enlisted for three months from April 2, 1778, and the 


roll was sworn to in Barnstable County. He also enlisted Aug. 22, 1778, 
and was discharged Dec. 14, 1778, and served three months and twenty- 
seven days, travel included, at Winter Hill, as a member of the Company 
of Capt. Mathias Tobey, Col. Jacob Gerrish's Regiment of Guards. He 
probably saw other service. He may have died at the residence of his 
son James (320) in Tompkins County, N. Y. 

The old Goodspeed homestead in Tompkins County, N. Y., is on Cat- 
skill Turnpike about half a mile below Green Tree Tavern two miles 
from Ithaca. It was there that the family of James (320) was mostly 
born and mostly died. James was in this county as early as 1827 when 
he bought of John Ellis for $300 about 75 acres of Lot 64, Dryden Town- 
ship. In 1837 he bought another tract there of Samuel Whitcomb, about 
74 acres of Lot 65, paying $260 for tiie same. He seems to have died in 
1841, for in November of that year Mercy Goodspeed administratrix and 
Chauncey Goodspeed administrator of the estate of James Goodspeed 
deceased, sold to Jonathan Milk a small tract to obtain means with 
which to pay certain obligations due from the estate. In 1842 Chauncey 
bought back this land; this transaction may have been a mortage in- 
stead of a sale. A tract of land in Dryden Township was sold in June, 
1847, by Samuel (731) ; two years before he had bought a small tract, 
Lot 54, same Township. In April, 1848, Mercy, Chauncey, Adolphus, Ab- 
ner, Samuel and Benjamin, for $1,427, sold to Charles W. Smith part of 
Lot 64, about 87 acres; this was probably the old homestead. At this 
date Benjamin and Adolphus lived in Chemung County, and the others 
named in Tompkins County. On March 28, 1818, James and Mercy his 
wife, for the consideration of $375, sold to Cyrus Leonard, cordwainer, 
of Lee, Mass., a tract of about five acres near the latter 's shop on the 
Housatonic River, at Lee. James no doubt moved from Lee to Ithaca 
between 1818 and 1827. 

Adolphus E. (726) was a strict churchman; he was first a Presby- 
terian, but later became a Baptist; the Sabbath in his home was rigidly 
observed. Before their church was built, he was largely instrumental in 
securing ministers to preach in schoolhouses. He organized Sunday 
schools, was class leader, and as he had a fine clear voice, he led the 
church singing. He was a captain in the old State militia, and was 
known as "Captain Goodspeed." His old sword and uniform are in the 
possession of his grandson Newton H. (2110). He was early a lumber- 
man, but later a farmer. His descendants are thoroughly respectable and 
well-to-do. In Dec, 1853, Adolphus E. and his wife Betsalome trans- 
ferred to Silensa Hemingway, relict of the late Nathan Hemingway, of 
Horse Heads, a lot iu that village, the consideration being $1. Nathan 
and Silensa were the parents of Betsalome. In 1894 Hannah W. Good- 


speed, widow of James (1430) deceased, for $700, bought a house and 
lot in Spencer, N. Y. 

Benjamin S. (732) enlisted as a private at Ithaca, Sept. 23, 1861, in 
Company E, 64th N. Y. V. I., was mustered in Sept. 28, 1861, was dis- 
charged for disability at "Washington, Dec. 31, 1861; also enrolled at 
Lockport, Sept. 8, 1862, mustered in Sept. 13, 1862, as first lieutenant Com- 
pany C, 151st N. Y. V. I., became captain of Company D, April 7, 1864, 
reported killed in action June 3, 1864, at Cold Harbor, mistake, served 
honorably and lived many years after the war.

Edward (149) served the Colonies in the Revolutionary War. He 
was a private in Capt. Joseph Griffith's company. Col. John Jacob's regi- 
ment, Massachusetts, enlisted June 10, 1778, service six months and twen- 
ty-four days, travel included, enlistment to expire Jany 1, 1779. He 
passed his old age with his son Shubael in New York. He died near 
Warsaw, that State, as is shown by the records of the Presbyterian 
church which state that he was removed by death, but does not give 
the exact date. Very little more concerning him is known. In the rec- 
ords of the church at Warsaw, under date of July 14, 1808, he is appoint- 
ed with nine others to organize that church. 

His son Winslow (324) became prominent in business and public af- 
fairs in Vermont whither he removed from Barnstable in 1794. He was 
a carpenter, a millwright, a teacher of music and a chorister. By refer- 
ences elsewhere it will be seen that several other branches of the family 
came from Barnstable about the same time and established themselves 
in Vermont. Winslow settled at Wells, but lived for a number of years 
at South Granville, N. Y., a short distance westward; his oldest child 
was born at the latter place, but all the others at Wells. He was a 
Universalist in belief, and died at Wells in 1842; his wife Vinsa died 
in 1868 aged over ninety years. Their eldest child was born at South 
Granville, but all the others at Wells. 

Winslow Jr. (735) was also a millwright. The old Goodspeed mill at 
Wells was a famous landmark. It was known to everybody for many miles 


around, and the old fame still clings to the historic spot. It stood on Mill 
Brook, and connected with it was a turning machine. Winslow Jr. pos- 
sessed a mind of unusual breadth and a character that was worthy of 
the imitation of youth. If not the leading spirit of the community, he 
wielded an influence for good that was felt long after his death. He 
occupied many official positions with credit; he died at Wells. 

The children of Winslow, Sr., and Vinsa were large-boned and rather 
dark complexioned. Jonathan Swift (733) was a carpenter; he sepa- 
rated from his wife, and passed his last days with his sister Persis 
who, in the words of George A. (1442), "was the martyr of the family." 
He was gifted with great powers of mind, as indeed were nearly all the 
members of this branch. He was a book-worm, a philomathean, and at 
odd times mastered half a dozen languages; was the best linguist in this 
part of the State, but in that new country was unable to turn his great 
gifts to account. He was a Mason, a Universalist, and lived successively 
at Wells, Pawlet and Granville. Almon (737) was a blacksmith; he 
remained single and died at Wells. Norman (738) was a millwright; 
he moved to Illinois as early as 1838, later to Iowa and finally to Missouri ; 
his son William is a millwright and lives in Iowa. Abel (739) moved to 
Elyria, Ohio, in 1841 ; was a wagon-maker ; became a strong and con- 
sistent Presbyterian and a citizen of the highest character; he was a 
leader of moral conduct in his community. His obituary notices speak in 
the highest terms of his useful and correct life ; he was a prominent Odd 
Fellow. Persis (742) remained single, was a seamstress for many years, 
was a splendid, exemplary woman; was greatly beloved, and died well 
advanced in years, lamented by many stanch friends. It is unfortunate 
that this strong-minded branch could not have had better advantages 
for the development and exercise of their rare gifts of mind and heart. 

Aaron (736) inherited uncommon powers of mind, had a mechanical 
turn, was ingenious and invented one or more contrivances of merit. He 
enjoyed study and abstract reflection; was a Universalist, but did not 
join a church ; was too independent to be bound by creed. In early life 
he went barefoot, worked out, taught school, learned wagon-making, 
studied medicine and finally graduated from Caselton (Vermont) Med- 
ical College in 1835, in the same class with Doctor Armsby, of Albany. 
He began practicing at North Pawlet, but finally located at Granville, 
where he became the leading practitioner of this part of the State. His 
superior power of mind enabled him not only to master his profession, 
but to anticipate many of its reforms. He died of progressive muscular 
atrophy, and it is related that his love of his profession and of scien- 
tific investigation prompted him in his last moments to request the at- 
tending physician not to stupefy him with morphine as he wished to 


watch the progress of his disease and to observe as long as possible 
the steps of physical dissolution. His son George A. (1442) possesses his 
independence and originality of thought. He wrote of this branch, 
"My father and Uncle Winslow were the only good looking ones of the 
family; the rest were homely enough to frighten a bear. I would send 
you my picture, only I am in the same boat, and am cross-eyed besides; 
can't get a decent looking portrait to save my life." The force and 
applicability of this statement about looks will be lost upon those who 
do not know how easily a bear may be frightened and put to flight by any 
unusual, grotesque and ludicrous object. George A. (1442) is a pharma- 
cist at Granville, N. Y. His portrait herein shows him to be far from 
homely; "homely is as homely does." Much of the information herein 
concerning his branch is due to his investigations, efforts and interest. 

Of this branch Wallace (1436) met with a violent death. In some 
manner he was caught in the machinery of the saw-mill, his clothing 
was torn off, one foot was severed, and his limbs were terribly mangled. 
He lived about forty-five minutes. His brother Frank R. was in the 
mill at the time, but did not witness the accident. Abel's descendants 
live mostly in Ohio. 

Shubael (327) was pathmaster at Granville, N. Y., in 1801; his brother 
Winslow had been the same there in 1796. References to Shubael at 
Granville are made as late as 1803. Soon after that date he removed 
to Warsaw, N. Y., certainly before 1808. He was justice of the peace 
at Warsaw in 1821, and about this time bought one hundred acres which 
became the old Goodspeed homestead at Warsaw. The records there 
show that he sold this tract in 1832, and no doubt at that time moved 
to Michigan. In 1814 Shubael (327) was ensign in the 6th brigade of 
Genesee County militia, in 1815 he was captain, and in 1817 was major 
of the 171st regiment, N. Y. militia. He finally died near Ypsilanti. De- 
scendants of his son Hiram live in Elkhart, Ind. Americus V. (1461) was 
in the 100 days service in Indiana, was mustered in May 21, 1864, as a 
member of Company K., 136th I. V. I. 

David (746) lived for thirty years on a farm in Elkhart County, Ind.; 
the grand children of David live at Cove, Oregon. Enos C. (749) upon 
the death of his mother, was given when an infant to a family named 
Salisbury to be reared ; he grew up took their name, and all his descendants 
are now known as Salisbury. His grandson Frank C. Salisbury (2153), 
photographer, of Warsaw, has aided the author much in completing the 
record of this branch. The descendants of Owen E. (753) and Truman B. 
(754) live mostly in Michigan and are respected and well-to-do. They fail 
to answer urgent letters of inquiry.

•The Barnstable records show that Nancy (331) wa.s born 1772, but do not 
show her parentage. They further show that she was married there in 1795 to 
Cyrus Perry. It is concluded that she was the daughter of Joseph (150) because, 
1. He had a granddaughter Nancy C. who was probably named for her aunt; 2. 
The Nancy who married Cyrus Perry can be placed nowhere else; 3. The date of 
her birth exactly fits in with those of the other children; 4. The locality is har- 


to expire Jany. 1, 1779; also in Capt. Micah Hamblen's company of mat- 
rosses, Col. Nathaniel Freeman's regiment, service three days, on an 
alarm at Falmouth in March, 1779 ; also in same company and regiment, 
service two days, company marched on alarms at Falmouth in April, 
May and Sept., 1779. His son Asa (329) first lived at the village of Barn- 
stable, but later at Marstons Mills. He followed the sea with success 
for many years, and was known as "Captain Asa." For some time he 
commanded a packet which ran along the coast between Boston and the 
Sound cities. His son Charles (755) also followed the sea, was also Cap- 
tain and lived at Marstons Mills. For many years he commanded a 
coaster between Boston and Barnstable. Both Asa and Charles were men 
of far more than ordinary intelligence, enterprise and force of character. 
The will of Asa is dated July 1, 1856. To his daughter Eliza Hinckley 
he gave $1. To his grandchildren George Marston and Ellen Marston, 
children of his deceased daughter Nancy C, and to Gustavus Hinckley 
son of his deceased daughter Caroline "I give nothing, because they ex- 
pect nothing from me, as they are in comfortable circumstances as I 
am happy to know." To his daughter Harriet he gave a large portion 
of his estate, because, as he wrote, "she has been my faithful attendant 
in my declining years. ' ' To the widow of his son Charles he left a tract 
of land for her improvement, the same to pass to her three sons at her 
death — Horace, Frederick and Charles. Charles Marston, husband of 
his deceased daughter Nancy C, was named as his executor. Ellsworth 
C (2160) and Parker J. (2161) are residents of Minnesota; the former 
is a photographer at Waseca.

Rufus (151) passed the most of his life at Barnstable, but may have 
died in Vermont; he followed farming. He was a private in Capt. 
Hamblen's company of matrosses, Col. Freeman's regiment, service eight 
days on an alarm at Dartmouth, Bedford and Falmouth in Sept., 1778; 
also in a detachment of Capt. Micah Hamblen's (Barnstable) Company, 
Col. Freeman's regiment, service two days, guarding prisoners belong- 
ing to the British ship "Somerset" from Barnstable to Sandwich and 
Plymouth in Nov., 1778; also in Capt. Hamblen's company of matrosses, 
Col. Freeman's regiment, service three days on an alarm at Falmouth in 
March 1779 ; also in same company and regiment, service ten days, com- 
pany marched on alarms at Falmouth in April, May and Sept. 1779. 

Stephen (338) was reared at Barnstable, lived for a while at Province- 
town and went to Vermont in 1794 with Ansel Sr. (283). He was a shoe- 
maker until after his marriage, and then followed farming near Wells, 
Vt. He was not a member of any church, but was a Universalist in be- 
lief; many of his descendants are Methodists; a few are Episcopalians. 
All of his boys except Leonard were farmers, and spent their lives at or 
near "Wells, Vt. The Moncrief sisters were no doubt the descendants 
of the well known English family which has a coat-of-arms, a crest and a 
heritage of great renown. John H. (1503) was for a number of years 
on the Chicago police force; he died in that city. Reuben (339) of 
Provincetown made his will Jany. 21, 1857. He gave to his wife Han- 
nah all of his estate so long as she should live ; he gave her also his pew 
in the meetinghouse. He gave to his daughter Hannah S. Cook a part 
of his house and more at her mother's death. He signed his name to his 
will; Joshua E. Bowley was executor. 



(Sf) SILAS (152). 

SILAS (152) is not known to have married, but may have done so. 
Nothing more concerning him except his Revolutionary record has 
been learned. He was a private in Capt. Mieah Hamblen's company, 
Col. Freeman's regiment, service eight days on an alarm at Dartmouth, 
Bedford and Falmouth in Sept., 1778; also mentioned as both private 
and sergeant in a detachment of Capt. Mieah Hamlen's (Barnstable) 
company of matrosses. Col. Nathaniel Freeman's regiment, service two 
days guarding prisoners belonging to the British ship "Somerset" from 
Barnstable to Sandwich and Plymouth Nov., 1778 ; also sergeant in Capt. 
Mieah Hamlen's company of matrosses Col. Freeman's regiment, service 
three days on an alarm at Falmouth in March, 1779 ; also same company 
and regiment service two days, company marched on alarms at Fal- 
mouth in April, May and Sept., 1779. He disappeared completely with 
this record and very probably died of disease or was killed in the cause 
of the Colonies. 



(5a) SIMEON (156). 

SIMEON (156), also written though incorrectly in the Revolutionary 
records Simon, must have entered the army when only a little past 
fifteen years old, and seems to have been out on many calls until 
his sickness and death in the service of the Colonies probably during 
the winter of 1777-8. He no doubt died before he was seventeen years 
old. His military record is excellent. He was a private in Capt. John 
Russell's company, marched July 28, 1776, service to Sept. 30, 1776, 
two months and two days, company stationed at Martha's Vineyard 
for defense of the sea-coast ; also same company and regiment, service from 
Sept. 30, 1776, to Nov. 22, 1776, one month and twenty-two days, company 
raised for defense of the sea-coast and stationed at Martha's Vineyard 
under Maj. Barachiah Bassett; also return of men raised to serve in the 
Continental Army dated May 10, 1778, residence Barnstable, engaged for 
the town of Barnstable, joined Capt. John Russell's company. Col. Brad- 
ford's regiment, term to expire Jany. — , 1778, reported mustered IMay 26, 
1777, by Joseph Otis, muster master for Barnstable county ; also in sixth 
company Col. Gamaliel Bradford's regiment. Continental Army, pay ac- 
count for service from May 22, 1777, to Dec. 28, 1777, reported deceased ; 
also in Capt. John Russell's company. Col. Bradford's regiment, muster 
roll for Dec, 1777, enlisted May 22, 1777, joined June 26, 1777, enlistment 
for three years; also same company and regiment return (year not given) 
mustered by Continental muster master, reported sick and absent. He 
probably did not marry or leave decendants.

(7c) Calvin (787) born on the Nashwaak river nine miles from 
Frederick, N. B., May 5. 1842, married Anna, daughter of William and 
Rosanna (Logan) Fowler, no issue; they have adopted Claire aged thir- 
teen in 1904, Marion aged eight in 1904, and Greta who died in her twelfth 

Thomas (157) was born at Barnstable, Mass., and was reared by his 


uncle Joseph probably, as his father died about 1774. He served in the 
Revolutionary army. He was a private in Capt. Micah Hamblen's com- 
pany, Lt. Col. Hallett's regiment, enlisted Aug. 12, 1780, discharged Oct. 
30, 1780, service two months and twenty days, travel included, at Rhode 
Island, his company was detached from militia to reinforce Continental 
Army for three months. Just at the close of the Revolution, when aged 
nineteen years, he moved to New Brunswick, and it is recollected by de- 
scendants that he said in his old age, notwithstanding his service with 
the rebels, that his sympathies were with the British in the Revolution- 
ary struggle. He was a farmer, and May 22, 1804, located on a farm on 
the Nashwaak river near Frederick and there passed the remainder of 
his days ; the old farm is yet owned by his descendants. He was a Presby- 
terian, but late in life became a Baptist. 

Benjamin (342) and Calvin Luther (343) were also farmers and lived 
and died in that vicinity. Benjamin and his wife were Baptists. The 
brothers lived on adjoining farms. Benjamin N. (781) also occupied a 
part of the old homestead. The brothers lived useful and honorable lives. 
Both served as justices of the peace, an office of greater dignity, juris- 
diction and power than in the United States. Luther (785) and Benja- 
min N. (781) have also served as justices of the peace; so has Clarence 
N. (1514). Luther (785) was elected to the municipal Council of York 
County, N. B., in 1874, but the following year resigned to accept the chair- 
manship of the board of valuators. In 1878 he was again elected to a seat 
in the council, but retired in 1901. Thomas (779) and John C. (782) 
were farmers and had the highest respect of all who knew them. Almeda 
J. (1511) went to Boston in 1886, and entered the Boston City Hospital 
Training school, remaining two years. She was then night superintendent 
of Pennsylvania Hospital, at Philadelphia, for seven months, after which 
she was occupied with private nursing, much of the time under Dr. S. 
Wier Mitchell. In the spring of 1899 she went with a lady patient to 
Kirksville, Mo., the latter having much faith in the Osteopathic treatment. 
While thus engaged Almeda J. had an opportunity to examine the merits 
of that school of health. She therefore determined to study Osteopathy. 
She entered the institution in the fall of 1899, took a two years course, 
received her diploma, and located in Chicago for the practice of her pro- 
fession. There she is at present doing well. 

Harry A. (1520) took a course in engineering from the Scranton 
Correspondence school and is now in charge of an engine at Buffalo, N. 
Y. Frederic G. (1525) graduated at Acadia College in 1902 with the de- 
gree of Bachelor of Arts. He also graduated in engineering from the 
University of New Brunswick with the degree of B. A. I. Recently 
he was engaged as an engineer on the Georgian Bay Canal survey. Clar- 


ence N. (1514) lives on the Nashwaak, a tributary of the St. Johns river, 
on the old homestead called "Elmsdale." He conducts a large dairy 
farm. He is a justice and has made himself prominent in temperance 
work. Having held the various minor offices, he was elected in Aug., 1902, 
Grand Councilor of the IMaritime Grand Council and took an active part 
in the important deliberations of that body. Reader, look at his portrait 
herein and see if you do not like the face you there observe. Opportun- 
ity would make a second Joseph Chamberlain of him. His branch are 
mostly Reformed Baptists. 

Calvin (787) D. D., LL.D., determined in early youth to obtain an 
education. His matriculation work was done at Fredericton Baptist 
seminary, N. B. He graduated from the University of the Province in 
1866 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts and with the highest standing 
in his class. He taught school, studied Hebrew, and in 1868 went to 
Eng. to enter the London University, but failure of health prevented, 
though he studied at Regent's Park College. He then labored for a while 
on a home mission, and in 1869 was called to the principalship of the 
Baptist seminary where he had first studied and remained there for three 
years. He finished his theological studies in 1872 at Newton Theological 
seminary with the degree of Master of Arts. In the autumn of 1875 he 
became pastor of the Baptist church at Woodstock, Ontario, and there 
baptised 197 persons during the four years of his pastorate. In 1879 
he taught temporarily in the Baptist seminary at Woodstock, but, after 
two years, feeling the need of further study, he went to Leipsic, Germany, 
and spent some time in the famous university there. Upon his return he 
accepted the pastorate of the First Baptist Church of Yarmouth. 
Novia Scotia, but four years later resigned to accept the position of edi- 
tor of the ]\Iessenger and Visitor. In 1890 he was appointed to the chair 
of Systemic Theology and Apologetics in McMaster's University,Toronto, 
in which work he still continues. He received the degree of Doctor of 
Divinity from Acadia University, and that of Doctor of Laws from his 
alma mater. A number of publications from his pen have appeared : 
"Messiah's Second Advent, a Study in Eschatology," and several inter- 
esting pamphlets and reviews for the American Journal of Theology. 
For the past seven or eight years he has done much editorial work on the 
Canadian Baptist. He was recently engaged in editing a commentary 
on Genesis prepared by the late Doctor Welton, and has in contemplation 
work on a new Bible dictionary. He has greatly distinguished himself, 
added much to advanced religious thought, and has shed renovsm upon 
our common family name by the purity of his life and the loftiness of his

Isaac (160) of Barre, Mass., was a carpenter; he served the Colonies in 
the Revolution. He was a private in Capt. Ephraim Stockwell's company, 
Col. Job Cushing's regiment, enlisted July 28, 1777, discharged Aug. 29, 
1777, service one month, seven days travel included, company marched 
to Bennington, July 28, 1777, to reinforce the army under General Stark ; 
also a private in Capt. Benjamin Nye's company, enlisted Sept. 26, 1777, 
discharged Oct. 18, 1777, service twenty-nine days, travel included, 
company marched under Maj. Jonas Wilder to assist the Northern Army 
for 30 days. He seems to have lived for awhile at Middleborough, Mass. 
The record there shows that in 1783 the States* committee consisting of 
John Fessenden, Caleb Amidown and Jonathan Warner transferred to 
Isaac Goodspeed "yeoman of Middleborough, County of Plymouth," for 
the sum of £49 in silver, on the occasion of a public sale, a tract that had 
been seized by the State, the language being "and there being a due 
and Lawful Confiscation of the Estate of John Murray, esqr., late of 
Rutland, a conspirator, Scituate in Barre in the County aforesaid" ad- 
joining the lands of Moses Holden and John Caldwell and the river. In 
this tract were about ninety-five acres. About nine months later Isaac 
sold this tract to Peter Fessenden for £100. In 1786 Isaac bought of 
Peter Fessenden a tract of about 100 acres for $500, but the following 
year sold it to his brother Luther at the same price. In this transaction 
Isaac is called "yeoman," but in a sale in 1807 he is called "gentleman." 

**Ann Sophila Pierce was the daughter of Haven and Hannah (Bice), grand- 
daughter of Moses H. and Anna (Eice) and great grand daughter of Thomas. 

tDorcas C. was born Dec. 7, 1840, daughter of Henry and Adaline (Wright), 
and grand daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Gill). Henry, Sr., moved from 
Princeton to Hubbardston. 


In 1814 another Isaac (347) appeared on the scene at Hubbardston. 
In 1814 he sold to Joel Pollard, Jr., two tracts in that town. He is called 
"housewright" in 1819 and at that date sold several small tracts to Levi 
Greenwood for $1,000. He is called "gentleman" in 1823 when he sold a 
tract to Job Richardson. In 1833 he sold two tracts to Henry Clemence 
for $1,500 and is called "gentleman," and his wife Lucy signed the deed. 
In 1838 he is called "gentleman," and at that time was administrator 
of the estate of Isaac Taylor of Winehendon. In his will he made his son 
George N. his sole executor. He gave to his wife Lucy W. the use of all 
his estate so long a she should remain his widow. If she should marry 
she was to receive one-fourth of the estate, and each of his three sons 
one-fourth. His will was probated in 1851. Upon the death of Isaac 
(347) his son Henry Clay, who was a minor, asked to have his brother 
George N. made his guardian ; this was granted by the court, but did not 
last long. Isaac (347) learned the carpenter trade of his father; he also 
probably inherited from his father a love for things military, for he 
served in the State militia, was Captain of the Hubbardston Rifle Com- 
pany, served with honor and distinction and was afterward called "Cap- 
tain Goodspeed." He had both love and genius for mechanical pursuits. 
He possessed rare judgment, unswerving integrity and the utmost re- 
spect and confidence of his fellow citizens. He seemed wholly unin- 
fluenced by prejudice or mere talk. He cared nothing for ofBce, and was 
a Whig. When quite young he was taken from Rutland, Mass., to Hub- 
bardston, but in 1834 moved to Winehendon. 

His son George N. (792) worked on his father's farm until he was 
eighteen years old. He then served an apprenticeship at the machinist's 
trade, and in 1849 entered into partnership with Baxter Robinson for 
the manufacture of wood-working machinery in Winehendon. In 1856 
Harvey Wyman succeeded Mr. Robinson, the firm becoming Goodspeed & 
Wyman. George N. continued to be business manager. His practical 
knowledge of the business and his keen insight into the requirements of 
his customers, soon placed the firm in the front rank as builders of wood- 
working machinery in the United States. Ere long, so well was the firm 
established, their products found market in all parts of the world. Once 
the entire plant was destroyed by fire, but before the half-melted ma- 
chinery and twisted shafting were cold, George N. was laying plans for 
rebuilding. In less than ninety days during a New England winter, the 
plant was again in operation. In 1880 Mr. Wyman died, after which 
George N. became sole proprietor. Among his products were tub, pail, 
chair, bobbin and spool machinery, pony planers, back knife gauge lathes, 
screw machines, cylinder stave saws, dovetail machines, etc. He amassed 





a fine fortune by sheer industry, mechanical genius, strict honesty and 
sound managerial judgment. He was a Republican, a Unitarian and 
stood high in the community. At his death he left an estate worth at least 

In a large measure his success was due to the mechanical skill of his 
brother Harrison P. (793), who for many years was superintendent of 
the works. Upon him devolved the important duty of designing the pat- 
terns and superintending the construction of the machinery. His su- 
perior mechanical skill, long practical experience and unremitting care 
and attention contributed materially to the fame of the firm in all civi- 
lized countries. George N. and Harrison P. were ever intimate associates 
in business and otherwise. They were brothers in deed as well as in 
fact, which truth speaks volumes as to their kindly natures, their fairness 
or sense of justice and their irreproachable characters. They married 
sisters and for thirty years resided in the same house under domestic re- 
lations of the closest and most agreeable kind. Surely it is unnecessary 
to comment on the nobility of such men in a world where too often 
brothers are at swords' points and such relations are impossible. 

Henry Clay (794) passed his life on the farm near Winchendon former- 
ly owned by his father. He was blessed with the same splendid qualities 
which distinguished his brothers — was fair, kind, honest, intelligent, 
above vice, enraptured with virtue and with life, and inspired with prac- 
tical love for all mankind. 

The sons of George N. — Adin I. and Luther G. — succeeded to the 
business, both practical, able and fitted to wear worthily the robe of 
honor left them by their father. 

Nearly all in this branch are Unitarians ; their qualities of heart, mind 
and habit place them high above many other so-called Christians; they 
are indeed earnest followers of the man Christ. Throughout this branch 
like a thread of gold runs a cord of exceptional mechanical genius. Ap- 
parently it is the result partly of inheritance and partly of education and 
persistent application. Several have reaped the inevitable harvest — 
social prominence, superior refinement and independent fortune. 

James Rivers (345) was merchandizing in Boston in 1813, his partner 
then being Judson Cage or Coge. Not much of him is known. His sister 
Elizabeth (346), of Hubbardston, died in Boston in 1828 while on a visit to 
her relatives. Her brothers were her heirs; her brother John admin- 
istered her estate. 

John (351) and his wife Louisa, in 1827, sold a tract in Hubbardston 
to Thomas Templeton for $650; in this instrument he is called "house- 
wright." In another instrument he is called "carpenter of Hubbards- 
ton." In several others he is called the same. He continued this occupa- 


tion and in after years became one of the most extensive and successful 
building contractors in New England, particularly of church edifices. 
He was singularly kind, charitable, cheerful, honest, able and upright. 
He was an Abolitionist before the Rebellion. He was a Unitarian ; creed 
was too narrow for him. The fatherhood of God and the brotherhood 
of man were sufficient for his spiritual needs. He lived over ninety-two 
years and died widely lamented. All who knew him called him "Uncle 
John" and loved him. He was a fine type of upright American man- 
hood. Charles (800) was a member of the Fourth Massachusetts Heavy 
Artillery during the Rebellion and has a splendid service record. He 
was in many battles, and was wounded, and mustered out at the end of his 
term, but died of his wounds in 1866. 

John (801) early gave great promise. He became superintendent of 
the House of Refuge, New Orleans, in which institution were about four 
hundred boys. When the yellow fever visited that city in 1853, three 
hundred of the boys and all of the officers except three died of the 
scourge, among them being John (801), a fine capable man. 

Albert (803) has been engaged in business in and near Boston for 
many years; he furnished much valuable information for this work; his 
sons reside in Boston and New York City. 

Lot (348) is said to have served in the War of 1812, and to have 
been taken prisoner. He was born at West Barnstable. He lived for 
a while at Burlington, Conn., and was a housewright, and later a dis- 
tinguished contractor and builder. In 1818 he sold a tract of land near 
Rutland, Mass., to James Howe for $700. He possessed high mechanical 
ability and was noted for his high sense of honor. He lived for a time at 
Massillon, Ohio, where his son Major Wilbur P. was born. He removed to 
Haydensville, Mass., where he died. 

Major Wilbur Pisk (799) won unusual fame in the artillery service 
of the Union Army. He entered as first lieutenant of Battery A, Pirst 
Ohio Vol. Light Artillery, Sept. 6, 1861, became captain July 22, 1862, 
and major Oct. 20, 1864. He participated in scores of movements and 
engagements, the principal being Shiloh, Siege of Corinth, pursuit of 
Bragg, Stone River, Duck River, Chickamauga, Buzzard's Roost, Rocky 
Face Ridge, Dalton, Recasa, Calhoun, Adairsville, Dallas, Rickett's Mills, 
Kenesaw Mountain, Pine Mountain, Lost Mountain, Culp's House, assault 
on Kenesaw, Nickajack Creek, Smyrna Camp Ground, Chattahoochie 
River, Peach Tree Creek, Atlanta, Siege of Atlanta, Jonesboro, Lovejoy 
Station, pursuit of Hood, Columbia, Duck River, Franklin, Nashville, 
pursuit of Hood, Huntsville, Bull's Gap, Greenville, Nashville, New Or- 
leans. He veteranized Jany. 30, 1864, was assigned to duty as Inspector 
of Artillery, Fourth Army Corps July, 1864, and as Chief of Artillery, 


Second Division, Fourth Army Corps, Dec. 13, 1864. He was mustered 
out Aug. 9, 1865, as division commander of artillery, his rank corre- 
sponding to major-generalship in the infantry service. This is the highest 
rank attained by any one of the name during the Rebellion. His military 
record reflects on him the highest honor. 

After the vrar he became United States Marshal at Cleveland and oc- 
cupied that position for eight years. He made a comfortable fortune of 
several himdred thousand dollars in the iron business, and vpas for many 
years president of the Buckeye Malleable Iron Company, of Columbus, 0. 
He was frequently tendered the Republican nomination for Congress, 
which in his district was tantamount to election, but steadfastly de- 
clined, apparently having little taste for contests, except on the battlefield. 
His distinguished services are recorded on scores of pages in the Rebellion 

Chief of Artillery Lyman Bridges made the following special men- 
tion in June, 1864 : 

"Capt. C. C. Aleshire, 18th Ohio Lt. Bty. chief of artillery, second di- 
vision, was relieved by Capt. W. F. Goodspeed, June ultimo, who, while 
in command of the artillery at Peach Tree Creek July 20, ultimo, placed 
the two batteries of the 20th Corps in position and repulsed the enemy in 
his attempt to turn the flank of the Second Division." 

Gen. John Newton officially reported thus concerning the conduct of 
Captain Goodspeed 's and Captain Spencer's batteries in the Atlanta cam- 
paign : 

"I cannot conclude this report without bearing testimony to the gal- 
lantry and efficiency with which these batteries have been served through- 
out this campaign. Placed in every position as occasion served, some- 
times on the skirmish line, again in line of battle, and at other times re- 
plying to the enemy's guns at long range, I have never called upon them 
in vain to repel an attack or to silence the enemy's batteries." 

The following is his final discharge from the army : 

"General Orders, Head Quarters, Fourth Army Corps, 

No. 31. New Orleans, La., July 20th, 1865. 

"In accordance with instructions contained in General Order No. 122, 
current series. War Department, Adjutant General's Office, Major W. F. 
Goodspeed, First Ohio Light Artillery, is relieved per Special Order No. 


148, Par. I, from these Headquarters, from duty as Chief of Artillery of 
this Corps. 

"He adds one more to the long list of those who have helped fight the 
battles of the Union, and now, the work being ended, goes home to re- 
sume once more his position as a citizen. 

"In parting with Major Goodspeed, the thanis of the Major General 
commanding are due and tendered him for the long and faithful service 
he has performed in this Corps, and bids him farewell with feelings of re- 
gret and pride, regret that the service loses so valuable an officer and 
pride that his duties as Chief of Artillery of the Corps have been faith- 
fully performed. 

"Capt. Alex. Marshall, Battery G, First Ohio Light Artillery, is an 
nounced as Chief of Artillery of the Corps. 

By Command of Major General D. S. Stanley,

Luther (162) served in the Revolutionary army; he was a pri- 
vate in Capt. John Gibbs' company. Col. Ebenezer Sprouts' (Fourth 
Plymouth Company) regiment enlisted September 10, 1779, discharged 
September 13, 1779, service three days, company marched to Fal- 
mouth, Sept. 10, 1779, on an alarm ; also same company and regiment, the 
latter comanded by Lt. Col. White, enlisted July 31, 1780, discharged 
Aug. 9, 1780, service nine days on an alarm at Rhode Island, roll sworn 
to at Wareham. He was a farmer. In August, 1804, he sold to Thomas 
Hapgood for $50 a small piece of land in the northern part of Hubbards- 
ton; he is spoken of as a "yeoman," and his brother Heman witnessed 
the deed. In 1807 he sold to Joel Pollard, Jr., for $500 "land lying in 
common and undivided with Widow Ann Goodspeed, of Hubbardston. " 
This Ann was no doubt Luther's mother. In 1812 Luther sold to his 
brother Isaac for $511 a tract "lying in common and undivided with 
Widow Ann Goodspeed." Luther and his wife "Betsey" signed this 
deed. Luther, in 1829, sold his farm to Joel Pollard. The will of Luther 
of Hubbardston was probated in 1832; he left four daughters: Anna, 
Sarah M., Amelia and Eliza Ann, and two sons: Thomas and Daniel J. 
The latter was yet a minor, though near his majority. 

The estate of Thomas (355) was probated in 1840, and consisted of 
$2,437 of realty and $2,380 of personalty. He left his four children— all 
minors — to the care of their mother, Mary (Goulding) Goodspeed. In 
September, 1840, she asked the court to appoint a guardian for her minor 
children. Thomas married at Philipston and moved to Hubbardston 


about 1835. He was a merchant. Amelia (356) daughter of Luther died 
at Leominster ; she left substantial bequests to the descendants of all her 
deceased brothers and sisters. She left in cash and bonds $7,338. 

Thomas B. (809) served as a musician in the Thirty-sixth Mass. Vol. 
Inft, during the Rebellion ; he was mustered in Aug. 9, 1862, and mustered 
out June 1. 1863. Upon the death of Daniel J. (360), of Gardner, in 
1863, all of his children, except Thomas B. who was in the army, were 
placed under A. A. Bent and John Sawin, guardians. The old records at 
Worcester show that in March 1836, Daniel J. and others sold to David 
Bennett a tract of land in Gardner, Daniel J. then being a resident of 
that town. 

Charles E. (813) has spent the greater part of his life at Gardner. 
In early manhood he worked on a farm for five years. He was then for 
five years with Murray Classon, agent for the Gardner Cooperative As- 
sociation; he then took Mr. Classon 's place as such agent and has so con- 
tinued for thirty years. 

Philander Powers (807) learned watchmaking and the jewelry busi- 
ness generally in early adult life and became an expert at that business. 
He was located for some time in Worcester and later had a store at Mil- 
ford, Mass., not much is known of him as he has not kept in communica- 
tion with his relatives. 

Hon. Thomas Henry (806) has greatly distinguished himself. He was 
christened Henry, but upon petition of his widowed mother to the probate 
court, the name Thomas, in memory of the deceased husband and father, 
was legally added to his name. He followed mercantile pursuits at first, 
adding others from time to time, until he was so overwhelmed with busi- 
ness that he was forced to sell his mercantile establishment. He took an 
active and prominent part in public affairs, and, soon after the election of 
Abraham Lincoln to the Presidency, was appointed Postmaster at Athol, 
Mass., and held the office for twenty-three consecutive years. He served 
as town clerk eleven years, town treasurer four years, and on the school 
board one year. He served the town as chairman of the building com- 
mittee in the erection of several public structures; is now chairman of 
the committee of all town appropriations, chairman of the Athol sewer 
sinking fund commission and has served on many other important com- 
mittees. He has been a Republican since he became twenty-one years old, 
and has never failed to vote at State and National elections. For fifty 
years he has not missed more than three or four times being present at 
all town meetings and takes great interest in municipal affairs. In 1869 
he represented the first Worcester district in the State Legislature and 
served on the committee on towns. In 1896 he was chosen alternate dele- 
gate to the St. Louis convention which nominated William McKinley 
for President. He served more than thirty consecutive years as treasurer 

Deacon Joseph ( 4( 


of the executive committee of the Worcester Northwest Agricultural and 
Mechanical society, and would have been continued longer had he not 
refused further re-election. He was for seven years a member of the 
Massachusetts State Board of Agriculture. As justice of the peace he has 
served continuously for forty years. He is a commissioner to qualify 
civil officers and has followed the business of conveyancing for forty 
years; he has been engaged in probate matters the same length of time. 
In a dozen other important directions he has shown his high character, un- 
usual ability and popularity with his fellow citizens. 

In 1874 he interested himself in the organization of the Athol National 
Bank, was elected its first president and has been re-elected continuously 
ever since. He is vice-president of the Athol Co-operative Bank, and was 
one of the incorporators of the Athol Savings Bank which now. has de- 
posits of over $2,000,000. He was insurance agent for many years, was 
clerk and treasurer of the Athol Music Hall Association, president of the 
Athol Building Company, director of the Citizens' Building Company, 
clerk, treasurer and director of a railroad corporation for eleven years, 
and treasurer, clerk and director of the Athol Silk Company. He says of 
himself, "I have never hustled for any office, that being a thing very dis- 
tasteful to me, although it seems to be the fashion now. I would not do 
it and have never held any office luiless I was sought for it. ' ' 

He is extremely well posted on State statutory law, and seems to 
have a special and pronounced talent for the legal profession, in which 
he would have made a high mark. He said in one of his letters "I have 
never failed to reach a fair degree of success in any business I have un- 
dertaken — nothing remarkable, but ordinary." Pacts show that he has 
been far more than ordinarily successful in business pursuits. 

He was candidate for the State Senate in 1887, had strong support, 
but withdrew when his chances were as good as those of any candidate. 
The Athol Transcript of Nov. 1, 1887, said, "Athol has no man better 
qualified for this office than Thomas H. Goodspeed." In Oct., 1890, at the 
Republican representative convention, he made the speech nominating 
Lucien Lord. The Transcript said, "Though always foremost in the in- 
terests of the party, and for years exerting an influence second to none in 
the quiet, firm, decisive way that characterizes him, Mr. Goodspeed has 
never sought reward or recognition, though Athol has few men as com- 
petent to serve in high office." In 1897 the same paper said, "We call 
the attention of our tax payers to the article on the tax question by Mr. 
Thomas H. Goodspeed, and we know that it will command the respect and 
consideration that all public utterances of Mr. Goodspeed on matters af- 
fecting the interests of the town invariably do. He is a recognized au- 
thority in affairs relating to town finances, and his experience and judg- 
ment qualify him to speak with clear intelligence and positiveness. "

Elijah (163) was born at Barnstable. His grandson Russell B. claimed 
that, as a boy, Elijah was present at the battle of Bunker Hill, that later 
he was on a Revolutionary privateer with his uncle (probably Thomas), 
was captured by the British, carried to England and imprisoned until the 
conclusion of peace. While all this is possible, it is not probable. Elijah 
moved to Hastings, Oswego County, N. Y., about 1796, and there his wife 
Mary died in 1821, leaving him with eight children. About 1835 he moved 
to Brighton, Mich., and lived there until his death in 1846 ; his old age 
was passed with his son Jothram; he lies buried at Pleasant Valley

cemetery near where Jothram lived. He was by trade a blacksmith, an 
upright, hardworking man, large, square built, dark eomplexioned, like 
so many of the Goodspeeds. 

Daniel (362) was also a blacksmith and died in New York. Daniel's 
wife Phebe died early, leaving her little children to the care of strangers; 
thus they were scattered and lost track of one another. His son Russell 
B. lived at Constantia, N. Y. ; late in life the latter possessed an eccentric 
disposition; his children scattered and left him even before they had at- 
tained their majority; several of them reside in Chicago. Merritt 
M. (821) last lived at Muskegon, Mich. By the death of his mother, when 
he was about fourteen years old, he was left to shift for himself; he fol- 
lowed boating, lumbering, teaming and gardening. He was the first to 
enlist in the Union Army at Constantia, N. Y. and the last to come home 
to that place. He entered the service at Syracuse, N. Y., July 23, 1861, 
in Company B, Van Allen's cavalry, for three years. They became the 
Third N. Y. Cavalry. He served nearly three years, and was then dis- 
charged to be reenlisted. His command was consolidated with the Tenth 
N. Y. Cavalry under the name of Fourth Provisional N. Y. Cavalry. He 
finally quit the service as corporal with four and a half years to his 
credit, having participated in many of the most important battles and 
campaigns of the Army of the Potomac. He was severely wounded in the 
arm by a gun shot and later received a liberal pension for his disabil- 
ities. During the war, his wife's people removed to Michigan, and at the 
close of the war he followed them; he died at Muskegon. Charles D. (818) 
brother of Russell B., according to the latter, "worked himself to death 
at about fifty years of age trying to get rich, and failed ;" he was a farm- 
er and lumberman in Oswego County, N. Y. 

On Aug. 15, 1832, Hiram (361) of Nankin, Wayne County, Territory 
of Michigan, sold to Russell Fitch, Jr., of Hastings, Oswego County, N. 
Y., for $468, a tract of about thirty acres in Hastings Township, Oswego 
County, N. Y., the same being a part of Scriba's patent. Hiram 
signed the deed alone ; he was unmarried. In 1839, Hiram of Michigan, 
sold to James Murthee, of Hastings, Oswego County, for $300, a tract 
in Hastings Township, Central Square village. Though Hiram died un- 
married, he left a large estate at Ann Arbor, Mich. He was one of the 
first merchants of that city and became quite wealthy. At his death he 
left the bulk of his estate to his sisters Abbie and Mary who had taken 
care of him in his old age. He is said to have been one of the first suc- 
cessful of the old merchants of Ann Arbor, Mich. Abbie (365) died in 
Ann Arbor, Mich., where for many years she lived with her brother 
Hiram ; she was unmarried. 


Jothram (364) moved to Michigan in 1835; there he died in 1865; he 
and his wife were Presbyterians; many in his branch are farmers and 
lumbermen. Calvin A. (822) lived at Williamston, Mich. His brother

Daniel (164) probably left Mass. soon after attaining his majority 
and at the time of his marriage lived in Saratoga County, N. Y. He 
does not seem to have lived there permanently until 1812, because there 
is no mention of him on the town records until that date. The rec- 
ords at Luzerne show that he paid a road tax there in 1811 ; he no doubt 
lived in that village, did not own land, and was probably a mechanic. 
The records of the Baptist church at Corinth sbow that he was baptised 
there Dec. 4, 1812 and was dismissed about 1816 ; they also show that his 
wife Abigail was baptised Feb. 22, 1813, and dismissed in 1816. About 
the latter date they moved to Steuben county. Abigail seems to have 
died soon after the removal, because Daniel took another wife, with

whom Sarah, Sabrina and Patty, daughters of Daniel, could not agree, 
and they returned to Corinth to live and there they finally married. 
Daniel probably died in Steuben County. So far as known he did not 
serve in the Revolution. 

Of his descendants Eurilla Freeman is living at Bradford, Pa. Ar- 
thur Sr. (375) left home when a young man and did not return for many 
years; when he finally did they failed to recognize him and he remained 
with them a day and night before disclosing his identity. Afterward 
some of them visited him and repeated his tactics with almost equal suc- 
cess, greatly to the amusement of all. He first found a home in Bradford 
County, Pa., and probably married there. His mother in law Valeria 
had a second husband namedArchibald and lived in Windham Township, 
Bradford County; at her death her daughter Eliza A. (Welch) Good- 
speed received a portion of her estate. Arthur finally located as early as 
1858 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pa., and there his son Arthur 
Jr. (833) is yet living; there all the children of the latter were born. 
Eva J. (1570) and Julia L. (1573) live at Lander, Wyo. George W. (836)

at Washington, D. C. Lyman Deloss (1572) is the present deputy sheriff 
of Tioga County, Pa. ; he resides in Wellsboro. If you wish to see a face 
in which absolute fearlessness is shown look at his portrait herein. Eunice

R., son of Eunice, is a prominent business man there ; his children Jessie, 
Raymond and Susie J. have distinguished themselves in their studies.

barston for $800 ; and in April, 1805, he bought of Artemas Goodenough, 
M. D., a tract in Hubbardston for $1,200. In the latter deed he is called 
"yeoman," showing that he was engaged in farming as well as shoe- 
making. On Aug. 9, 1808, Heman and Elizabeth sold to Mary Parker a 
tract in the same town for $1,000. They also sold a tract in that town 
to Isaiah Rider and Ezekiel Ramsdell. Two years later they sold a tract

bardston about half a mile west of the meetinghouse" to Justus Ellin- 
wood. Heman 's will is dated March 4, 1843. He left to each of the 
following persons one dollar: His sons Benjamin F. and William C. and 
his daughters Maria McClanathan, Sophronia Pratt, Elizabeth Pond, 
Mary Davis and Melinda Hale. To his daughter Fidelia, widow of Wil- 
liam M. Wheeler, he gave the residue of his estate upon condition that 
she would support her mother Elizabeth so long as she should live. He

wealthy builder and lived in Worcester about twenty years. Later he

Herring streets, according to the old city directory. In 1855 he was en- 
gaged in the real estate business at 142 Fifth Ave. with residence at 20 
West Fifteenth St. The directory of 1870-1 calls him a broker with 
house at 313 W. Nineteenth St. He died in 1873. He was able, indus- 
trious and moral. Benjamin F. (1579) has been connected with the 
Munro Publishing House, of New York, for many years. The members 
of this branch are useful and honorable citizens, with an abundance of 
latent ability in store for opportunity. 

Edwin (839) went west and located at Bloomington, 111.; he was a 
patternmaker, a Republican and an Episcopalian. His son Edwin F. 
(1574) is an electrical engineer, and his son George L. (1575) is a machin-

in Cambridge in 1775. His great grandfather, Maj. Denny Reed filled all the 
judicial offices on the Lower Kennebec in Maine. 

tJohn H. was the son of Joshua (3), Salathiel (2), Caleb (1); his mother was 
Tobitha Howes. 

**On Lydia's tombstone is inscribed the following verse: 
"The fairest flowers that round us bloom, 
Must wither and decay; 
And love and bliss like morning dews, 
Must early fade away."

(6m) Arethusa (398) married first Jime 11, 1843, George H. Bearse,

Charles (166) studied medicine and practiced that profession the 
most of his adult life in and around Hyannis, Mass. He died at Sandwich, 
but was buried at Hyannis. He was one of the most widely and favorably 
known men on the Cape during his era. In his will dated March 20, 
1848, he gave to his sons Charles, Franklin and Arthur one dollar each, 
and to his daughters Harriet Nye, Julia Watt, Susan Hinckley, Mary 
Nickerson, Caroline Terry and Arethusa Bearse, one dollar each. All 
the residue of his estate he gave to his wife Diadema. He named his son 
Charles as his executor; the witnesses to the will were A. C. Howland, 
Charles S. Goodspeed and Lucy P. Goodspeed. 

Charles (388) followed the sea, became Captain and was ever after- 
ward known as such; he visited many distant parts of the world and 
possessed great force of character; many interesting tales of his naviga- 
tion of the sea could doubtless be told and would be read with avidity 
by his relatives, but they have not been furnished. 

Henry Churchill (856) was in many essential particulars a superior 
man. He had an excellent business training, and at first showed marked 
aptitude for mathematics ; but later, as is often the case, exhibited a high 
order of genius in literature. He secured with the Goodspeeds of Good- 
speed's Landing, Conn., the important position of bookeeper and confi- 
dential clerk and acquitted himself greatly to his credit and to their sat- 
isfaction. Thus qualified he entered into partnership with his father in 
the ship chandlery business in New York City in 1860. He is called 
"merchant" in the New York directory of 1855 with residence at 23 
Hamilton Ave., Brooklyn, and place of business at 27 Coventies Slip. In

Old Goodspeed Homestead, East Haddam. Burned 1903. 


1870 he is spoken of as "chandler" at 46 West St., and merchant at 123 
Front St., N. Y. He possessed almost unlimited energy and industry, 
not always traits of the Goodspeeds. He was ambitious with lofty ideals ; 
was not content to plod — must fly. He could not help but prosper, his 
relatives at Goodspeed's Landing continuing his stanch friends. During 
the Civil "War he ran two lines of steamers to North Carolina — one to 
Newburn and one to Wilmington. They were called the "Goodspeed 
Lines," the name not being inapplicable, for the service was good. The 
New York landing was Pier 12, North River. During the war his firm 
were awarded government contracts for the transportation of troops. 
Upon the decline of shipping after the close of the war, Henry C. invested 
largely in Utah mines, took his family to Salt Lake City, and resided 
there nine years. He took an active and prominent part in the affairs 
of the territory, was regular correspondent of the Chicago Inter-Ocean 
and other Eastern newspapers, and reporter of the bullion market for the 
New York Graphic. In 1876 he was appointed judge to the Centennial 
exhibition and served on shipping group No. 19. During the most of the 
eighties he lived in Boston, though still retaining his western mining 
interests. He was a graceful and luminous writer, and excelled also as 
a public speaker, his remarks being easy and fluent and replete with pith, 
anecdote and humor. He died at Salt Lake City, and one of the papers 
there contained the following notice: 

"Salt Lake, Utah, Jan. 21. — Maj. Henry Goodspeed, who came to this 
city in 1860 representing eastern newspapers, died this morning. He 
wrote a series of widely read articles on the Mormons. Through his ef- 
forts and with the assistance of John Deere, the millionaire of Moline, 
111., he established Hammond Hall, an institution in Salt Lake, founded 
to counteract the Mormon doctrines by its educational influences. During 
his residence in Utah he directed the expenditure of over $3,000,000 in 
the development of successful mines. During President Garfield's admin- 
istration Maj. Goodspeed was offered and refused the Governorship of 
this territory. A wife and daughter in the East survive him. The re- 
mains will be sent East for burial." 

Charles (1585) was born in Atlanta, Ga., was educated at Plymouth, 
Mass., and at Williams College, an affliction of the eyes preventing his 
graduation. He went to Newbury, Vt., for his health, and there studied 
medicine under Doctor Watkins. He subsequently graduated at Dart- 
mouth Medical school, and for six years thereafter practiced in the hos- 
pitals of Brooklyn, locating finally at North Abingdon, Mass. His ex- 


ceptional skill in surgery gave him great prominence. Unfortunately, 
he died in 1888. Generally he possessed all the excellent qualities 
which distinguished his father, with even greater polish and brilliance. 
His social powers were electric, making him a popular companion and 
the life of any group. He was in love with art. The beautiful, the ten- 
der, the sympathetic, met responsive chords in his own warm heart. His 
brief life left with his sorrowing relatives a cherished and holy memory. 

"William Benson (861) distinguished himself in banking circles. As 
a young man he began service as a bank messenger and by intelligent 
effort and good conduct rose steadily step by step until he became 
cashier of the First National Bank, of Hoboken, N. J. in 1883. Before 
him in this position, as well as in that of president, had been William G. 
Shepherd, who afterward became his father-in-law. From 1883 to the 
day of his death in 1899, William B. retained his position of cashier. He 
was blessed with excellent gifts — honesty, fidelity, trustworthiness, indus- 
try, sound judgment, a pleasing personality and good looks. He was 
loved and respected by all, and was an excellent example of American 
gentleman. He was stricken with apoplexy in the night and died in an 
houi- — Jany. 3, 1899. He left much valuable property to his widow and 
children who recently resided in New York.

Wally (168) was no doubt named for Rev. Thomas Wally, the second 
Barnstable pastor (see elsewhere). He was a farmer, but followed the 
sea in his early manhood. In 1792 he bought 100 acres on which ther° 
was a dwelling, at Wakepee, from Shearjashub and Benjamin Bourne. 
A few days after making the purchase, he sold one half of the land and 
one half of the house to his father Joseph. In this deed Joseph is mentioned 
as of Sandwich "yeoman" and Wally of Barnstable. This farm was 
probably a part of the original Bourne purchase from the Indians. 
Henry Weston (879) later occupied this farm. Wally was treasurer of 
the Mashpee Plantation of Indians. He bequeathed to his sons Obed, 
Harrison and Joseph all his wearing apparel and $1 each. To his two 
daughters, Celia and Lucy H., he gave all his household goods — furniture, 
beds, bedding and indoor movables. To his son Thomas he gave all his 
real estate of every kind — houses, lands, tenements and hereditaments; 
also all his personalty — horses, cattle, farming utensils, etc. Thomas was

Wally (168) was no doubt named for Rev. Thomas Wally, the second 
Barnstable pastor (see elsewhere). He was a farmer, but followed the

constituted his sole executor. Wally signed his name to his will. The 
witnesses were Enos Hinckley, David Fuller and Nymphas Marston. 

Obed (399) succeeded his father as treasurer of the Mashpee Planta- 
tion of Indians, holding the office from 1823 to 1834. He was elected a 
director of the Falmouth Bank in 1826. He was interested with others 
in the development of the whaling industry which was carried on from 
the port of Wood 's Holl in Falmouth. He served as pathmaster, and was 
a carpenter and builder and extended his trade as far south as Charleston, 
S. C. He was a prominent anti-slavery advocate, a Whig and a Repub- 

Joseph (405) resided at Sandwich and later at New Bedford. He was 
born in Wakely, Barnstable township, and was a carpenter by trade. 
The greater part of his adult life was spent in New Bedford. He was a 
deacon of the Trinitarian Congregational Church there, and at his death 
the following entry was made on the church record: "We have lost by 
death our good Brother Dea. Joseph Goodspeed who died at So. Boston 
at the residence of his son on the 23d of Sept. 1871. He was for many 
years a member of this church and generally known and highly re- 
spected." He lies buried on the Goodspeed lot at Sandwich. 

Obed (880) graduated at the high school in New Bedford, then went 
to Boston and entered a dry-goods store. He was with the mercantile 
house of C. F. Hovey & Co., Boston, for fourteen years. He then entered 
the Boston & Providence freight station and remained there engaged 
until his death, probably from heart disease. He retired in his usual 
health and was found dead in bed the next morning. He was a Repub- 
lican and a Trinitarian, but late in life joined Phillips' church in Boston. 
He lies buried in Hopkinton, N. H. 

Alexander McLellan (870) is a lawyer at New Bedford, Mass. He 
was educated at the public schools and at academies and was destined 
for a mercantile life, but it proved distasteful. He taught school, and 
then spent four years in the West, being three years of the time with the 
Atchison & Nebraska Railroad Co., in the engineering department. One 
year was spent in Chicago. He then returned to Massachusetts, and 
studied law at New Bedford from 1877 to 1880, being admitted to the bar 
at New Bedford the latter year. He has for many years been connected 
with banking interests, as a director of the Falmouth National bank 
and as an attorney for the same. He has served as a member of the 
board of trustees of Lawrence Academy, Falmouth. He joined the First 
Congregational Church of New Bedford in 1866, the Unitarian Church at 
the same place in 1883 and became deacon of the latter in 1885. He has 
a fine mind and wonderful perceptives, as can be seen from his portrait. 

Arthur Willis (1598) graduated from the Andrew Grammar school. 


Boston, in 1874, from the Boston Latin school in 1880 with the Franklin 
medal, from Harvard college in 1884 with the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts, and highest honors in Ph3'sics, having also taken highest second 
year honors in mathematics. He received the degree of Doctor of Philos- 
ophy from the University of Pennsylvania in 1889; was assistant of 
physics at that institution in 1884-5; instructor of physics in 1885-9, and 
assistant professor of physics in 1889. He was elected a member of the 
American Philosophical Society in 1896. and a secretary of the same in 
1901. He has been a member since 1890, and vice-president since 1900, 
of the New Hampshire Antiquarian Society; became a member of the 
American Association for the Advancement of Science and Fellow in 
1898 ; a member of the American Physical Society ; vice-president of the 
American R(5ntgen Ray Society in 1902, and president of the same in 
1903, and was elected to the Society of Arts. London, in 1902. He has 
particularly distinguished himself in scientific investigation and research. 
He took the first Rontgen picture in the world on Feb. 22, 1890, but was 
unaware of the fact until after Rontgen had announced his great dis- 
covery. He made vast improvements in radiographic work, reducing the 
time of exposure from one hour to fifteen seconds. His experiments yet 
continue to be of the highest importance and are giving him world-wide 
reputation. No doubt other great discoveries are before him and other 
high honors awaiting him. 

The will of Harrison (871) of Falmouth, "master mariner," is dated 
March 30, 1857; his name is signed in beautiful penmanship to his will. 
His estate was worth about $6,000. He gave to his son William H.. when 
he should reach the age of eighteen years, his watch, chain and other 
jewelry. A third of the property passed to his widow Caroline E. His 
two children William H. and Anita M. equally divided the remainder. 
Caroline was executrix. On June 4, 1856. Harrison, "master mariner," 
and Susan Goodspeed, widow, both of Falmouth, Barnstable County, for 
the sum of $1,500, sold to B. P. Hayward, a dwelling in the village of 
Campello ; Susan was the mother of Harrison. 

The will of Obed (399) of Falmouth is dated Oct. 18, 1864; he left 
to his widow Elizabeth IMcL. the income of all his real estate and much 
of his personality, consisting mostly of bank stock and corporate shares, 
so long as she should remain his widow. Upon her death all was to 
pass to his son Alexander McLellan (870). His widow was his executrix.

*The name Alice in early times was often spelled with the i omitted — Alee, 
and was pronounced in two syllables — Alsce or El-see. In time the name Elsip 
was thus derived no doubt. Mrs. Sarah E. Watson, of this branch, writes that 
her grandmother told h&r that her name was Elsie and not Alice. This seema 
probable, and it is here so recorded. In the records at Barnstable the name of 
Eoger Goodspeed's wife is several times written "Alee."

May when he was discharged for disability at the U. S. A. General Hos- 
pital, Philadelphia, Pa. After the war he lived about four years with the 
Crow tribe of Indians. While in the West, he probably bought a lot in 
Port Scott, Kansas, about 1870 or 1871 ; this was sold for taxes and has 
been sold thus ever since. It is now built upon and very valuable; no 
doubt his heirs could secure something if they would push his rights. 
In his old age, though level-headed, he affected eccentricity, was called 
"Captain," and was regarded as something of an oracle.

Calvin (171) died in 1846, but his will is dated March 15, 1844. To 
his widow Sarah he gave the improvement of one-third of his estate 
so long as she should remain his widow. To his daughter Eliza, wife of 
William E. Percival, he gave $5 and one-fourth of his household furniture 
upon the death of his widow. To each of his daughters Chloe, wife of 
Benjamin Fish, Judith H., wife of Thomas Nye, and Sarah A. unmarried, 
he gave the same as to Eliza. To his son Charles S. (421) he gave all the 
rest of his estate, real and personal, provided he would furnish a home 
for Sarah A. so long as she should remain single. In case Charles S. did 
not thus provide Sarah A. with such a home, she was to receive one-third 
of the estate bequeathed to him, provided she should remain single. 
Charles S. was named as executor. Calvin's estate consisted of his 
homestead, a piece of salt meadow and about seventeen acres of wood- 
land. He was a farmer and a man of excellent character. His life 
was singularly honest and uneventful. His son Charles S. Sr., was also 
a farmer, respected by everybody who knew him. Unfortunately, he died 
when his son and only child was but three months old. Charles S. Jr., 
was thus reared wholly by his mother and her people. He received a fair 
education, and has followed mercantile pursuits the greater portion of 
his adult life.

Gen. Gates to reinforce the army at Ticonderoga, was engaged Oct. 
28, 1776, returned Nov. 18, 1776 from Cornishtown, service twenty-two 
days, was credited with rations, earned £1 15s 2d ; he attained the rank of 
sergeant. Nothing more concerning him is known; he probably lost his 
life in the service of the Colonies, or he may have lived after the Revo- 
lution, married and reared children. If so no trace of them has been

Moses (180) married at Falmouth, Mass., and lived later in China, 
Me. About 1810 his house was destroyed by fire, together with all of the 
family records then in his possession. During the Revolution, this part 
of Maine was very wild, wolves, panthers and bears abounding. His wife 
Ruth Gifford had first married a Mr. Weeks and had two children by

moved to Minnesota. Weston (424) and Arnold (427) lived in Pitts- 
ton, afterward called Randolph; Sarah (429) also lived in Maine. Fran- 
cis C. (907) wrote under date of 1889, "I believe there were never any 
drunkards, nor prison birds, nor any hung, by the name of Goodspeed; 
all I know of that name are in comfortable circumstances." He was a 
ship's carpenter about one year in the Union Navy; he enlisted in the 
Navy at Portland Aug. 31, 1864, as a landsman volunteer and served 
on the "Sabine," "New Hampshire" and "Gemsbok" and was dis- 
charged from the latter June 12, 1865; he followed farming later. His 
brother William M. (912) served three and a half years as a member 
of Company C, First Maine Cavalry; he was mustered in March 10, 1862, 
and his regiment participated in twenty-nine engagements, the most noted 
being Winchester, South Mountain, Second Bull Run, Antietam, Freder- 
icksburg, Gettysburg and Cold Harbor. 

Burbank S. (913) was a fine English and Latin scholar and was promi- 
nent in Odd Fellow circles. Hon. Arnold (427) was for many years a 
prominent member of the Methodist Episcopal church; he was a class 
leader and exhorter. He took an active interest in all public affairs, was 
finally elected to the Legislature and served with credit two terms in 
the lower House. The records of the sessions show that he was one of 
the strongest debaters of that body. Three of Arnold's children died 
comparatively early — Burbank S., Arabella A. and James M. Three 
others moved to California and became prosperous. William (425) lived 
about 88 years; Weston (427) died at the age of 87; Alvin (423) lived 
88 years. 

Dr. Isaac R. (903) worked on a farm until fifteen years old ; was edu- 
cated principally in the public schools. After reaching the age of seven- 
teen, he began to teach school during the winters and to follow the 
sea during the summers. When eighteen years old he began the study 
of medicine under Dr. C. W. Whitmore, Gardiner, Me., and in the mean- 
time attended the academy at Litchfield. He finally entered Bowdoin 
college, medical department, and was graduated with honor from that de- 
partment in the year 1854, and soon afterward went west and began the 
practice at Milwaukee, Wis. In 1855 he was surgeon for the Milwaukee 
and Chicago Railroad while that railroad was under construction. In 
1857 he went to California and has lived and practiced in that State ever 
since. He engaged in mining, but found it uncertain and quit. Later he 
practiced at Pescadero and taught school, his practice being small owing 
to the sparcity of settlers. He also engaged in the mercantile business. 
In 1872 he located in San Mateo where he served four years as physician 
of the County Hospital, and also served as postmaster. In 1884 he was 
appointed surgeon for the Pacific mail steamship City of Sidney, to run

to Australia. The next year he became the Republican candidate for the 
State Senate from San Francisco, but was defeated with the rest of the 
ticket, that city being strongly Democratic. Recently he was health of- 
ficer and county physician of San Mateo county. He is six feet tall, 
weighs 250 pounds and wrote, "I was never sick a day in my life; been 
through enough to kill 100 common men. as we had hard times in the 
early days in California." He has ever taken a prominent part in public 
affairs, particularly politics, and has abundant ability and energy. He 
is a strong speaker, and his views on all public questions are clear, sound 
and emphatic. 

Leroy W. (904) grew up on his father's farm and at the age of 
twenty-six years engaged in the retail grocery and provision business in 
Randolph, Me. He continued this business for twenty years, and during 
that time served four years as postmaster. He also served ten years 
as freight and station agent at Randolph for the K. C. Railway. For the 
last twenty years he has been trial justice, and in this capacity has earned 
both unusual distinction and honor. If mental qualities and character- 
istics can be read in the face, then his countenance shows keen discern- 
ment and discrimination. He is a Mason — past master of the Blue Lodge 
and past eminent commander. Knights Templar. He is a Republican and 
a Methodist.

Allen (189) signed his will July 17, 1825, but did not die until 1831. 
He gave his widow Ruth in lieu of her dower $400 and the improvement 
of their household furniture so long as she should remain his widow; 
also one-half of the improvement of the rest of his estate, real, personal, 
mixed, and the use of a piece of woodland and a piece of marsh which 
had come to him from his grandfather Moses. He gave to his son Seth 
(430) a six acre tract of woodland, a piece of salt meadow in the Great 
Marshes which had likewise come to him from his grandfather Moses. 
To Abigail (922) his eldest grand daughter he gave $30. To his son 
Allen (432) he gave all the rest of his estate, real and personal — lands, 
woodlands, meadows, cedar swamps, buildings, live stock, farming uten- 
sils and his indoor movables upon the death of Ruth, as also her estate. 
Allen (432) was enjoined to care for his mother so long as she should 
live. He signed his name to the will. Nymphas Marston was judge of 
probate at Barnstable at this time. 

Hon. Seth (430), of Barnstable, at his death, gave to his sons James 
Robbins and Seth Leland and to his daughters Eliza R., Adelia and Caro- 
line L. $1 each. To his wife Clarissa he gave all of his other property. 


real and personal, and constituted her his executrix June, 1869. Seth (430) 
was a man of unusual force of character, and became both wealthy and 
prominent. With only a common school education, he became influential 
in local public affairs and successful as a ship builder and salt manu- 
facturer, building his ships on East Bay (Osterville), and making salt 
from sea water. He lived at Osterville, and acquired a large and valuable 
property. He took little interest in religion, but was an ardent Demo- 
crat. He occupied many ofScial positions with credit if not distinction, 
and represented his county in the Legislature 1838-39. He was able, 
shrewd and honorable and was favorably known throughout southeastern 

Allen (432) "yeoman," of Barnstable, in his will, gave to his widow 
Hannah $400, all the furniture she brought with her at the time of her 
marriage and the improvement of the household furniture so long as she 
should remain unmarried. He directed his executors to take his share in 
the earnings of the schooners "Transport," "Vermont," "Atlantic," 
"Albany," "Ganges," "Henry Curtis," "Penn" and "Clarion" and the 
sloops "Toleration" and "Empress" until such vessels should be sold 
and invest the same in savings banks and stocks. He also directed that 
his shares in such vessels should be sold as soon as practicable and the 
proceeds similarly invested. All was bequeathed to his son Henry (932) 
when he should reach his majority. In case of his death the property 
was to pass to James R. (927) and Francis (928) nephews of the testator. 
To his widow Hannah he gave one-half of his personal estate and one- 
half of his realty. He also gave to Henry (932) one-half of the residue 
of his estate. He named his brother Seth and Luther Hinckley as his 
executors. The will was dated May 9, 1839. 

Hannah, widow of Allen (432), left all of her wearing apparel and 
ornaments to her brothers Bela, Isaac, Chipman and Ebenezer Whelden 
and to her two sisters, Lucy BVilIer and Susan Whelden, to be equally di- 
vided between the six. To her son Henry (932) she gave $1. All the re- 
mainder of her estate she gave in trust to Nathaniel Hinckley to be prop- 
erly invested for the benefit of Henry (932) when he should reach his 
majority. In case of his death it was to go to her brothers and sisters. 
Henry was about six years old at the date of the will. 

Rev. James Robbins (927) followed the sea from the time he was 
fifteen years old until about 1873. In the meantime he had managed to 
study theology and on that date was licensed to preach. Before his 
death he attained much distinction, becoming known throughout the 
"Cape" as a churchman of deep piety and a minister of more than ordi- 
nary eloquence and success.

in the affairs of the community. He took an active and earnest part in ad- 
vancing every movement calculated to promote public morals and educa- 
tion. He possessed strong and attractive qualities, and in 1870-71 was 
chosen to represent Barnstable, Sandwich and Falmouth in the lower 
house of the Legislature. He served with signal credit in the Union 
Army as a member of the Fortieth Regiment, Mass. Vols., and of the 
Veteran Reserve Corps. He was mustered in Aug. 31, 1862, and was

Joseph (199) opened a store at Haddam, Conn., about 1804. With 
characteristic energy and ambition he pushed every department of his 
business. About 1815 he moved across the river and opened a store in 
a building which is yet standing and is used as a joiner's shop in the ship- 
yard. All of his business plans were wisely designed and resulted in rap- 
idly accumulating wealth. It finally became necessary to enlarge his fa- 
cilities, and he formed a partnership with Horace Hayden and built a 
large store on the site now occupied by the large structure built in 1876 
by William H. (435). He amassed a handsome fortune and won great 
fame, but at the height of his prosperity, "on Christmas day, 1847, while 
sitting at his desk in his counting-room apparently in good health, his 
earthly career was closed without word, warning or struggle." 

The next year (1848) his sons George E. (434) and William H. (435) 
established the firm of G. E. and W. H. Goodspeed, which succeeded to 
the business founded by their father. Before the latter 's death, they all 
had commenced to build vessels quite extensively, and the two sons, full 
of inherited ambition and business ability and finesse, saw that no wheel 
was permitted to stop, but rather that others were started. Ship building 
was carried on extensively from 1846 to 1866, though George E. died 
1863. The place became known as " Goodspeed 's Landing" and is shown 
on all the old maps of the State. A station on the railway established 
there a number of years ago is called "Goodspeed." 

The brothers headed every public movement to advance the interests

of the community. They were instrumental in establishing the "Bank 
of New England," of which George E. was the first president and was 
continued as such annually until his death. They emitted money under 
the old private banking system, and the portrait of at least one of them 
was on some of the bills or "shinplasters." William H. succeeded 
George as president, and he also thus officiated until he passed away. 

They founded and successfully conducted a steamboat line running 
daily between Goodspeed's Landing and Hartford. George E. became 
a director in the Hartford and New York Steamboat Company and con- 
tinued to serve as such for many years. At his death he was succeeded 
by William H. who eventually became its vice-president and general 
manager and so continued until his death. 

The brothers were trained to the business from childhood by their 
father. Long before they had attained their majorities, they had mas- 
tered all details, had become their father's chief assistants and steady 
counsellors and had made themselves invaluable to the vast and varied 
interests of the business. Their immense store was a boon to the farmers 
from a radius of scores of miles, because they were paid for everything 
they produced, whether a dozen eggs or a thousand tons of ship timber. 
The market at Goodspeed's Landing was always open and fair. The fame 
of those days — the immense interests and transactions of the Goodspeeds, 
the accommodation and fairness at the store, the daily arrival and de- 
parture of the boats, the reliability and integrity of the father and his 
sons — still clings to this historic spot on the emerald banks of the Con- 

Joseph Horace (933) received his early education at the grammar 
and private schools of East Haddam, Conn. He finished at the academies 
of Colchester and Cheshire and at the Hartford high school. He then 
entered his father's store and while thus engaged fitted for college under 
the tutelage of Rev. H. B. Hitchings. He entered Trinity college in the 
fall of 1862, but the death of his father the following year obliged him 
to leave to attend business. Later he went West and in August, 1865, 
entered the banking house of Kuntze Brothers, Denver, Col., but upon 
the establishment of the Colorado National Bank by that firm in 1866 
was elected its vice president. In the fall of the same year he went to 
Central City, and became cashier of the Rocky Mountain National Bank 
and remained in that city until 1870. In 1869 he was elected treasurer of 
Gilpin County, Colo. In August, 1870, he accepted the position of cashier 
and paymaster of the Kansas City, St. Joseph and Council Bluffs Railway 
Co., with headquarters at St. Joseph, Mo., and remained there imtil 1875, 
when he became general auditor of what were then known as the "Jay 
Roads" of the West. The following year, through the influence of Charles 


Francis Adams, chairman of the board of railway commissioners, he re- 
ceived the appointment of supervisor of railroad accounts for the State 
of Massachusetts and occupied that position until 1881. In that year he 
became general auditor of the Mexican Central Railway Co., and other 
organizations under the management of Thomas Nickerson. In 1887 he 
was elected treasurer of the West End Street Raihvay Co., of Boston. 
In 1897 he became comptroller of the Boston Elevated Railway Co., and 
two years later treasurer of the iMassachusetts Electric Companies, which 
position he yet holds. He is a Knight Templar and a member of the 
society of Mayflower Descendants through Richard Warren, John Tilley, 
Elizabeth Tilley and John Howland. He has resided in Boston since 

George Edward (936) received a good education and finished by 
graduating from the Sheffield Scientific School, Hartford, Conn. In 1881 
he entered the employ of the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Co., was ap- 
pointed its assistant treasurer 1898, and its treasurer 1899. He still oc- 
cupies that position. 

William Robbins (938) was educated at Cheshire academy under Mr. 
Horton, and from 1866 to 1868 attended General Russell's school at New 
Haven. He then entered his father's store at Goodspeed's Landing, and 
at his father's death succeeded to the business. In 1872 he became as- 
sociated in business with W. C. RejTiolds, and from 1876 to 1887 was pro- 
prietor of the store. He then sold out, became interested in farming, 
and secured an interest in a creamery at East Haddam. Recently he 
operated a steam ferry at that place. For twenty-two years he officiated 
as director of the National Bank of New England and for six years was 
trustee and representative of the Columbia Trust Co., of Middletown, 
Conn. At present he is engaged in the brokerage business. He is a 
Mason, an Odd Fellow, a Republican, and senior warden of St. Stephen's 
church. In October, 1903, the old Goodspeed homestead at East Haddam 
was destroyed by fire, whereupon William R. and his family moved to 
Hartford permanently.

As EARLY as 1765 the citizens of Barnstable Township, anticipating 
a possible rupture with the mother country, instructed their select- 
men in town meeting to take the supplies of powder, bullets and flints 
then on hand out of the possession of Deacon Davis' executrix and place 
them in the custody of some pei-son who would keep them ready for use. It 
was also decided at this time to appoint a committee to prepare instruc- 
tions to Nymphas Marston, the representative to the General Court, to 
guide his actions "at the present critical juncture." This "critical 
juncture" was the course pursued at Boston and elsewhere in the Colo- 
nies to contravene the Stamp Act and the other repressive and ob- 
noxious measures. 

Nymphas Marston, whose mother was Ijydia (28), was one of the 
most pronounced and prominent advocates of Independence in the town 
of Barnstable during the entire period of the Revolution. His ability and 
courage, his unfaltering support of every measure to achieve success, and 
his prudent, ceaseless and untiring energy made him one of the chief 
leaders of the Revolutionary movement on the "Cape." So far as can 
be learned he was supported in this course by every Goodspeed in the 
county. It does not appear that one of the name supported the Tory 
cause ; all were in favor of Independence and took active part in the town 
meetings, in the accumulation of munitions of war, in actual service in 
the field if able to bear arms and in all the hardships and sacrifices of 
that eventful time. 

At a town meeting March 10, 1773, Col. James Otis, Daniel Davis, 
Edward Bacon, Nymphas Marston and Cornelius Crocker were appointed 
a committee "to take into Consideration the request of a number of free- 
holders who have set forth that our Liberties and Rights are encroached 
upon, as stated by the Committee of Correspondence of the town of 
Boston, and to consider the Infringement of the same and make Report 
at the adjournment of this meeting." Later the report was returned, ac- 
cepted and handed to the representative for his instruction. In 1774 
"the body of the people" openly prevented the holding of courts at Barn- 


stable under Royal authority ; and in September of the same year a com- 
mittee of correspondence to preserve order, act in conjunction with like 
committees of other towns and keep in touch with Boston and with the 
trend of all public events was appointed. Daniel Davis was elected repre- 
sentative to the "Great and General Court" to be held at Salem in October, 
1774, "in this time of Difficulty, Darkness and Distress." He was in- 
structed as follows: 1. To work for the restoration of the liberties that 
had been wrested away. 2. To use his best efforts to have the port of 
Boston opened. 3. To oppose the Act of Parliament to govern the Col- 
onies with a stronger hand. 4. In no way to assist or encourage the 
officers appointed under that Act. 5. If the Legislature should be dis- 
solved by Royal authority, to meet and work with the members thereof 
in the interests of the Colonies. 

In January, 1775, the town voted to pay no more tax to the Crown, 
and the constable collectors were directed to cease making collections 
until further orders. At this time, also, the town voted not to buy arms 
and ammunition and not to organize minute men in response to the ap- 
peals of the Enthusiasts; but resolutions to act in accordance with the 
recommendations and instructions of the Continental Congress were 
adopted. From the start Moderate Whigs were in the majority, and 
continued to hold the balance of power during the war. In 1775 Nymphas 
Marston was one of the selectmen, Rufus (151) was deer reeve, and Isaac 
(60) was packer of fish for the town. Some twenty-five or thirty adult 
male Goodspeeds took part in all of these historic proceedings. 

In April, 1775, the town voted to buy small arms and more ammuni- 
tion and to establish three military watches to be under the command 
of Captains James Davis, Ebenezer Jenkins and Benjamin Lumbart. 
The constables were directed to collect and pay the tax to Henry Gardner, 
Esq. It was voted to send two representatives to the Provincial Con- 
gress to be held at Watertown May 21, to proceed against all persons who 
would not attend the military watches, to guard the sea coast, and to buy 
more powder. In March, 1776, Nymphas Marston was one of the select- 
men, Isaac (60) and Philemon (109) were packers of fish and Rufus (151) 
was regulator of Herring brook. The town appointed a committee to 
learn why citizens were arrested under Royal warrant and taken out of 
the town for trial. No corn was allowed to be shipped from the town by 

Previous to this time Independence, though debated and considered, 
had not been publicly acted upon, but now the Enthusiasts, headed by 
Colonel Otis, became very active and insistent. There was a large ele- 
ment among the Whigs which believed that the time was not yet ripe for 
revolt, and when important action thereon seemed pending, a strong

protest against severe measures was presented for the consideration of the 
town. This act still further divided the Whigs. On June 25, 1776, a 
majority voted not to instruct the representative to advocate Independ- 
ence, which step kindled sharp criticism from the Enthusiasts. In answer 
to the criticisms Capt. Sturgis Gorham published an article in the papers, 
asking a suspension of judgment against the town, and was thanked 
for his course by a majority of the citizens in town meeting. It was 
formally announced that the true intent was merely to leave their repre- 
sentative uninstructed and was not to take a step either for or against 
Independence. This led the advocates of Independence to publish their 
protest, whereupon the town voted July 23, 1776, that the article called 
a "protest" and published July 8 in the Watertown newspaper by a 
"number of respectable inhabitants of the town of Barnstable" and 
signed by Joseph Otis and fourteen others "is a wrong and injurious rep- 
resentation of the proceedings of the tovra of Barnstable." But the dec- 
laration of Independence July 4 vindicated the minority. 

During the momentous events preceding the Revolution, and during 
the entire period of that struggle, except perhaps the last two years, the 
town of Barnstable was divided into four distinct parties or factions 
and rent asunder by numerous deeds of violence between friends and 
neighbors, engendering a bitterness that exists in the form of coolness 
and estrangement among descendants of the participants even to this 
day. The Whigs were divided into two factions — Enthusiasts and Mod- 
erates, and the Tories into two — Outspoken and Moderates. Many of 
the Tories were of the best families, wealthy and respected; in more 
than one family were to be found representatives of all four of the above 
factions. Necessarily, therefore, the widely divergent opinions during 
a period of such moment led to violence and bitterness. Early in the 
war the liberty pole at Barnstable was cut down at night — no doubt 
by the Tories, and the perpetrators were never discovered. Outspoken 
Tories resisted arrest by the vigilance committee. An anonymous cir- 
cular entitled 'An Indian Dreame" satirized outrageously the personal 
shortcomings and characteristics of several of the leading citizens. Per- 
sonal encounters even to the drawing of swords inflicted wounds that 
time has been unable to heal. One Tory lady was so severely and defi- 
antly outspoken in her opinions of the Revolutionists that, be it related 
to the everlasting shame and disgrace of the town, she was taken one 
night to an open lot by a band of men, covered with tar and feathers 
and ridden on a rail. No wonder the bitterness has refused to heal. 

Calls for volunteers were at first responded to with alacrity. The town 
was represented at Lexington and Concord and at Bunker Hill; several 
Goodspeeds participated in these engagements. On July 29 it was voted 


to raise a special fund to secure thirteen men to serve in the "Army of 
the United Colonies." Steps to care for the families of soldiers, patrol 
the coast, checkmate the Tories and protect property interests were taken. 
Late in 1776 and early in 1777 the to^vn despite intense opposition, was 
very active with men and means in prosecuting the war. Town meetings 
were frequently held and were stirring in the extreme. This was before 
the real hardships of the long struggle had begun to sap the sinews of 
war. In May, 1777, it was voted to recommend the plan presented by 
Worcester for a union of the Colonies and a form of civil government; 
the representative was instructed accordingly. In February, 1778, a 
committee for the purpose of considering the Articles of Confederation 
agreed to by fhe Continental Congress was appointed. The Articles were 
severely criticised, but the general plan was approved. 

By 1778 the hardships began to be severely felt. Prices went soaring 
and the town vainly endeavored to control them by resolutions. Calls 
for volunteers were frequent and heavy, encountered fierce resistance, 
and were met with the greatest difficulty, £10 per month being offered 
on the expedition to Peekskill and Providence and on others a little later 
£14 and finally £20. On the question of a proposed constitution for the 
CommouAvealth on the lines of the Worcester draft the vote stood 10 for 
and 59 against. 

Serious trouble over the representative arose. Joseph Otis and twen- 
ty-eight others petitioned that Edward Bacon, by reason of his extreme 
conservatism, be excluded from the public councils. He was called a 
Tory and an enemy of the Revolution. A town committee considered 
the petition and, in denouncing it, declared that "said paper contains the 
most unjustifiable and injurious reflections not only on the public char- 
acter of Edward Bacon, Esq., but on the loyal inhabitants of the town 
of Barnstable." It appears that the difficulty was merely due to the dif- 
ferences of opinion as to the wisdom of the lukewarm course pursued by 
Bacon. Otis and his adherents favored continuing the war strenuously 
and to the bitter end. Bacon and his followers favored a milder course, 
if not a positive compromise. The town declared that Bacon did not 
deserve the aspersions cast upon him, had been duly elected, had done 
well, and it was therefore recommended that the "Honourable House 
of Representatives dismiss the petition as groundless, scandalous and 
vexatious." Bacon was thereupon promptly reelected by a majority vote. 
But the protest against him became so vigorous, if not furious, that in 
1779 he was formally ousted from his seat by the State authorities. This 
action again rent the town asunder. The question was not Whig against 
Tory, but mild Whig against strenuous Whig. Bacon was mild, possibly 
too mild, but the majority supported him ; Otis though sustained by the

minority was defiaut, vigorous and tireless. He has since appropriately 
been denominated "Otis the Patriot." In this dire extremity a majority 
of the citizens took public action to vindicate the honor and loyalty of 
the town against the "unjust and injurious aspersions." A long series 
of resolutions defending the town and justifying the election of Bacon 
was adopted. One article declared that as the representative of the 
town had been excluded from the public councils, the citizens should not 
be asked to pay tax, as taxation without representation was one of the 
causes of the war. Bacon was reelected in 1780. and gradually as the 
struggle drew to a close the diiferences, bitterness and animosities in a 
measure subsided. 

The Goodspeeds were deeply concerned in all of these proceedings. 
They attended the meetings, and no doubt were on both sides of the con- 
troversy. It has been claimed that the differences were largely political 
and the result of personal and ambitious intrigues; but at the bottom 
must have been on the one hand the unswerving resolution to win inde- 
pendence at any cost, and on the other hand to uphold the authority of 
the Crown. 

In March, 1779, Benjamin (113) was fence viewer, Rufus (151) sur- 
veyor of highways, Nathaniel (67) hog reeve, Rufus (151) and Phile- 
mon (109) regulators of Herring brook, Rufus (151) petit juror. 

In May, 1779, a majority voted against another proposed form of 
State constitution and form of government — ayes 2, nays 56; but a year 
later voted in favor of the same with amendments. In 1780 the hard- 
ships and distress were extreme and fully tested the courage and pa- 
triotism of the Continentals. The Tories were bold, defiant, and out- 
spoken, while many of the Continentals were tired and wavering. An 
attempt to control prices again failed. The town tax was now £6,000 
as against £150 at the beginning of the war. 

In the spring of 1780 Benjamin (113) became constable of the west di- 
vision, with Rufus (151) on his bond. This was the most important 
office in the town, as the constable had to make all the collections; he 
spoiled a good record by a careless use of the town funds, but promptly 
made good the deficiency by the sale of his property. 

In June, 1780, the call for thirty-six soldiers from the town staggered 
the citizens, but heroic efforts to meet the levy were begun. It was 
found necessary to offer much larger bounties, but it was voted not to pay 
over £700 to one man, at the rate of sixty paper dollars to one of specie. 
Few volunteered under this offer. Then $20 in specie per month was 
offered, Spanish milled dollars being the standard. Many men finally 
announced that they would volunteer under this offer if the wealthiest 
and most prominent citizens would go the town's security. Thus even the 


town's credit was not good enough to fill the quota. Draft was threat- 
ened. Not having raised its quota the town was liable under tb j state law 
to a fine of £6,000. They seem to have failed because later they en- 
deavored to have this fine abated and probably succeeded. 

In 1780 Nymphas Marston was elected State senator, the vote being 
Marston 112, Lieut. Freeman 13. This year the town was assessed by the 
General Court 15,510 pounds of beef for the array. The tax in 1781 waa 
£10,000. All town meetings were held in the east and west churches. 
Additional calls for volunteers were made when it seemed that not an- 
other man could be secured. It was voted to raise £80,000 with which to 
secure men. Intense and continuous effort prevailed. Private individuals 
offered large sums; the tovra begged and pleaded. The best offer was 
$20 in "hard money" per month. The pressure was so great that severe 
protests against the enormous taxes were presented. One dollar in 
specie was now worth $72 in paper. In December, 1780, it was voted 
impossible to raise the beef required or money with which to buy the 
beef. The town took care of the families of volunteers. A draft was 
ordered, but the town voted not to act thereon, hoping otherwise to meet 
the deficiency. Still greater efforts to raise men for the urgent and stir- 
ring calls for help from West Point and Rhode Island in July, 1781, were 
made. Men who had failed to pass muster under previous calls were now 
accepted. The age limit, young and old, was exceeded; soldiers' taxes 
were remitted. Truly these were the "times to try men's souls." 

In 1781 Benjamin (113) was on the town's provision committee, Jabez 
(49) was warden, Joseph Jr (150) fence viewer, Philemon (109) deer 
reeve, Seth (68) and John (41) petit jurors. 

Dutchess and Ulster counties, N. Y., furnished the following Goodspeeds 
for the Revolution: Nathaniel (77), Hosea (80), Gideon (81), Isaac (82), 
Abner (104), Jacob (235) and Israel (236). It is uncertain how these 
men were related. It seems probable that the first four named were the 
children of Stephen (32) and Bethiah. and that Jacob and Israel were 
the sons of Abner (104). But this is conjecture. The records show that 
all of them served as stated elsewhere. A thorough examination of the 
church and town records of those counties may reveal the truth ; the facts 
are not at Poughkeepsie. As Isaac (82), Jacob (235), Israel (236) and 
Hosea (80) completely disappeared with the Revolution it is not im- 
probable that all lost their lives in the service of the Colonies. During the 
Revolution those counties occupied a strategic position of great impor- 
tance. The militia there was kept in constant readiness and saw hard and 
frequent service. These counties and Westchester had to care for nearly 
all of the British prisoners of war. Dutchess county was compelled to 
build a large goal at Armenia for their accommodation. There were

goals also at Bedford, White Plains and Poughkeepsie. A considerable 
body of militia was kept steadily employed in guarding the goals and the 
prisoners. Those Goodspeeds in the militia regiments must have partic- 
ipated in numerous engagements and campaigns. Those in the State 
or Line regiments must have been sent to the Lake George country, to 
the defense of New York and to the army of Washington. They no doubt 
participated in the historic movements along the Hudson and in the High- 

The success of the tired Continentals in 1782 made ample amends 
for their long trials and sufferings. Their efforts, courage, heroism and 
glory should not be forgotten. The Goodspeeds there were our fathers a 
few generations removed. To them we owe not only the debt of life, but 
of that liberty which the American prizes dearer than life. To fight 
against oppression, obscurity, ignorance and slavery is the test of moral 
and intellectual advancement and independence. If the "man with 
the hoe" had had such a courage and such a spirit a few generations ago, 
the serfs under the old world monarchies would have seen the light of 
liberty shining on a thousand hills and Millet would have had no subject 
for his famous painting nor Markham no theme for his famous poem. 
Ragged, destitute, laughed at by disloyal neighbors and friends, taunted 
and obstructed by Tories, wanting even the necessities of life and crushed 
with grief for loved ones gone forever, the Continentals imflinchingly 
and resolutely sustained the awful burden and havoc of war. Women 
were the sowers as well as the reapers of the harvests. In the fever- 
stricken camps, on the dreadful prison ships, in the cruel campaigns of 
winter, along the weary marches and on the red field of battle, were laid 
their precious sacrifices. Liberty, the happiness of posterity, outweighed 
the blood of the husband and the heart of the wife. Thus thought our 
mothers and fathers a few generations back. So, storming with the min- 
ute men at Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill, dashing with the Green 
Mountain Boys at Bennington, fighting Burgoyne at Saratoga, battling 
on the Brandywine, charging with Washington at Germantown and 
Monmouth, repelling the English at Newport, starving and freezing at 
Valley Forge, campaigning in the Highlands and along the Hudson and 
conquering with Washington and Lafayette at Yorktown were our 
fathers — our ancestors — were twenty-nine Goodspeeds, at least eight of 
whom gave their lives for the liberty you now enjoy. Do you owe them 
not the glimmer of a thought? Surely these bright lives, these golden 
years, this priceless liberty, deserve at least the tribute of gratitude 
&nd remembrance. They fought for self government and against arbi- 
trary subjection, and in advance of their time gave the Old World mon- 
archies the stinging rebuke that the people are the only rightful sover- 


eigns. With unfaltering confidence in the Declaration of Independence, 
they looked out on the future with unbounded courage and hope and 
went forth to war. Mothers and sisters saw the lives of sons, brothers 
and husbands go out like a torch in the wind, paused a moment in grief, 
then passed on quickly with upturned, tear-stained, but triumphant faces. 
So now this poor chapter and these Rolls of Honor are offered as a meager 
monument to our heroes of the Revolution and of the other wars. Their 
descendants just as nobly have put away many abominations. Now 
come the wars against amalgamation with objectionable races and to 
sustain the integrity of white civilization and blood, for a fair chance 
in the eompetiti-ve struggle for modern existence, and against the oppres- 
sions of wealth and the wiles of corruption. Will the present and future 
generations conquer as did the fathers?

Thinking that perhaps friends and relatives may be pleased to 
read a few verses from his pen, the author of this book subjoins a 
number op his alleged poems : 


How dark the day and cold the rain 

Across the wood and meadow drear; 
The wolves of mist with howl of pain 

Prey on the pale and passing year ; 
The sodden grass lies seared before 

The anger of the fierce North breeze, 
And Winter rends with rage and roar 

The plumage from the pleading trees. 

How like a mourning spirit raves 

The lashing cloud across the moor, 
Yet croons above the grassy graves. 

And weeps to see the day endure. 
Can it be true that wretched souls 

Return and wander on the blast. 
And threaten where the cloud unrolls, 

And on the Earth the hail-stones cast? 

How bright the firelight smiles within 

The cheerful house where raptures ring 
And laughing children sport and spin, 

Though rain upon the shutter cling. 
The door is shut, the window barred 

Against the warring shades without. 
And though they charge across the yard, 

They're beaten back with baffled shout. 

What though the raucous rain beat down, 

And all the world be dim and dark ? 
What matter if the harsh clouds frown. 

And leaf and blade be prone and stark ? 
The firelight glides from cheek to cheek. 

And glows the dream in sparkling eyes, 
And prayer drifts up with song to seek 

The heaven within the household skies. 



It burst where the fronds of the long Siunmer showed, 
And curved through the willows down over the road, 
And played with the bank where the marigolds glowed- 
The old meadow spring. 

Its banks were ensnaring — were mouldy and black, 
It sought for an outlet through puddle and track, 
But wonder : The dry tongues came many times back 
To the old meadow spring. 

The maples set flying their flocks of pale leaves, 
And the sheen where the Sun spun his magical weaves. 
Shone bright like the gold Summer's harvested sheaves 
Near the old meadow spring. 

The stars sent their spirits to float with delight, 
The flowers danced around it with iris eyes bright. 
The birds came to bathe with the gray morning light 
In the old meadow spring. 

On its bosom the thistle down freshened to pink. 
And the owl feather rode near the butternut brink, 
And the boy and the robin in turn came to drink 
At the old meadow spring. 

Ah. sweet was ray boyhood, when coming from school 
I've stretched myself down with my face in the pool. 
Where the life-giving waters rose bubbling and cool 
From the old meadow spring. 

I've puckered my lips with the choke-cherries there. 

And mile after mile chased the ground-hog and hare, 

Till fagged and o'ei'come I've made haste to repair 

To the old meadow spring. 

When spent seeking strawberries coyly concealed. 
Or worn hunting plovers' eggs down in the field, 
A draught of the cordial was rapture revealed 
From the old meadow spring. 

For those who knelt down to that sanctified flood, 
Rose up with Hope's tendinis entwined in their blood. 
Thro' the anguish of years there to blossom and bud — 
From the old meadow spring. 

Its mirror caught pictures from cloud-lands of white, 
Fast gleaming like pearl near the Palace of Light, 
And its flashes of life were the souls of the bright 
In the old meadow spring. 


How oft its sweet spirits have haunted my dreams, 
When tossing with sorrow on life's turbid streams, 
And wandering afar from the babbles and beams 
Of the old meadow spring. 

How oft when my soul is dismayed and a-swoon, 
And joy dies away like the pale setting moon, 
I've prayed I might wake with the roses of June 
At the old meadow spring. 

And now when old age strives to wrinkle and bind, 
When hands have grown silent and eyes become blind, 
My heart bounds with youth when I picture to mind 
The old meadow spring. 

(Sicilian Octave). 

Moon, that swimmeth round and free, 

Through solemn seas of silver air, 
Come sift thy splendor down on me. 

And gird me with thy yellow hair; 
Let heralds of thy doom 's decree 

Bring story sad of thy despair, 
Or send a message, bright to see. 

To hands that do and hearts that dare. 

Come softly. Moon ; in thee I '11 trust ; 

Speak not of dying globes of sand; 
But of the gems the globes encrust, 

And of the far-sung rapture land ; 
See yonder planet, razed with rust, 

But here the orb of life expand ; 
Lips in the dust, lips in the dust, 

So close to death the living 

No word, Moon ; thy voice is still ; 

The grave entombed thee long ago; 
With lustrous death on vale and hill. 

Thou art a tombstone, pale as snow ; 
But as the marble words fulfill. 

The legend bright of life below, 
The message from thy mountains will 

Roll back the stone and heal the blow. 



How stealthily the braves of shadow creep 

Alonp the forest toward the pale-faced moon, 

Which, melting down through somber mazes deep, 
Fares softly earthward like a huge balloon. 

See how they skulk and feign across the wheat, 
And in the crouching darkness fast conspire, 

While panting moonbeams beat a swft retreat, 
And seek their hearths beside the sunset fire. 

Mark how the moon burns, red'ning on the trees. 
While arrows fly — of jasper, jade and flint; 

And crawling shades surprise and rudely seize 

The frightened beams they bind with thongs of tint. 

A moment hangs she there— a splendid sight, 

Then plunges o'er the chasm— how or where? 

And quick with fearful hush the squaws of night, 
Down on the moonlight slip their umber hair. 

But mark the campfire stars catch in the skies. 
And burst in flames across the arching blue. 

Till all the stretch an Indian village lies, 

And clouds of wigwam smoke dissolve in view. 

How ominous is the silence. Not a sound 

Flows from the distant pine tree's ivy tower; 

But see, the Sachems kneel on sacred ground. 

And pray for might to hold their savage power. 

The panther starlight crouches near the wall, 

Where late the moonlight slept — a pallid sea; 

And now the owl's malign and curdling call 

Comes like a scalp-halloo from rock or tree. 

And thus the shade-braves skulk in field and way, 
And there the starry fires glow in the skies. 

Until the brave white chief — the Scarlet Day, 

Bums all their wigwams with his flaming dyes. 


Life, why art thou leaving me 

Step by step as the yeare slip by? 
We have been lovers in field and sea, 

Roving and loving while earth scenes die ; 
But now you slip from my grieving heart, 

And vine the past with a cloak of green; 
Why, pray why, should we ever part, 

fair, sweet, golden Life, my Queen. 


You came at birth to my arms below — 

Heart in heart to the smiling world ; 
And o'er us flamed Love's golden glow, 

And many a silken joy unfurled; 
Until one day of radiant dawn. 

The earth burst into a heavenly bloom, 
And Life — the waves, the woods, the lawn,' 

Had scarce for our boundless rapture room. 

And Life, you came to me all unsought— 

Came as the sunshine hugs the hills; 
But first your presence little taught, 

Till I awoke to your smiles and thrills ; 
Then how the waves of my being laughed, 

And the hours ran on like dancing rain, 
And you and I, Life, together quaffed, 

All the unmemoried gold and gain. 

Then youth at your smile became a man, 

And wedded you. Life, on a summer day ; 
And every bird in my heart began, 

To weave wild notes for his roundelay; 
The world grew sweet and fair and near, 

And the sky bent down to the blushing fields; 
And 0, blest Life, you became so dear, 

In the rapturous hours that living yields. 

But now you glide to the youthful days, 

Calling to you from the fields and streams, 
And leave your lover in quandam ways — 

Too old for ardency — wrapt in dreams; 
A useless shell on the shore of years; 

Myself up on the sands of time. 
Will sing of your witchery — joy and tears — 

And the hopes so bright of this golden clime. 

And some day. Life, when you wholly go 

And leave me — a garment of stain and rust— 
I'll trace your feet by the spirit's glow. 

And the flame that lives in the ashen dust; 
I'll wait your coming with famished eyes — 

Eager again for your burning song. 
For deep in the future a loved land lies. 

And you. Queen, and I to that land belong. 



A bone the theme — a gleaming, grisly bone. 

The first to brace the protoplasmic waves; 
A cry for strength that ended with a groan ; 

A living spinal column nature craves : 
When lo ! Life rises from the musty ground. 

And walks rejoicing through the cosmic street ; 

While quadrupedal forms their like repeat 
In endless variations, round by round. 
An osseous mansion, ivory and sublime, 

Wherein to house the Monarch of the Mind, 
And the nerve heralds of his beck and call ; 
The noblest structural triumph of all time, 

With colonades and domes of thought refined 
And heavenly spires, behind the marble wall. 


Ah, King and Queen, upon a .jeweled throne. 

All life in vassalage its homage pays; 
Thy kingdom high, the cincture of a bone. 

As well the core that lilts its roundelays; 
The mount of knowledge, shining in the sun, 

The sea of pa.ssion, white with fragrant sails, 
Here, troops of swift emotions, love-begun. 

There, wisdom searching for her holy grails — 
To thee all, all belong, Heart and Brain : 

Thy food, ambrosial time's delightful span. 
Thy drink, the nectar light's unrav'ling rain. 

Thy gleaming palace, love 's entrancing plan ; 

And grand the rule thus tendered thee, man- 
Divine the harvest with its wine and grain. 


She lingers, dreaming, at the throne of May, 
The Sun, her love, has stained her tresses brown ; 
With tint and musk and many a pleasing frown, 

He leads her where the dancing blossoms stray, 

And seats her on his throne of moss and spray. 
Amid a splendid throng in petaled gown. 
Who, at his beck, salute her with a crown, 

And round her shoulders weave the ermine day; 

But jealous Summer, robed in rich brocade, 
Reproachful, ogles with the princely Sun, 

And with a maiden's craft her mesh is laid, 
To blandish him from Spring so sweetly won ; 

While Spring, deserted, leaves her throne of green, 

And Summer bright is crowned the reigning Queen. 



0, rosy Breeze of the Morning, tint-sailing, 
Wooing with myrrh and musk, 

Wait for the many loves after you trailing — 
Trailing from dusk to dusk. 

Why do you thoughtlessly pillage and wander 

Down the gossamer years? 
You should remember and tremble and ponder 

Ere you drink of the tears. 

Where did you gather the corn-poppy honey. 
Smeared on your violet mouth? 

You have been stealing, you rogue, the money 
Prom the melodious South. 

There now you steal from the locust and daisy, 

That's the food of the bees; 
Gather instead from the spicy lips lazy — 

Lips of the daffodil seas. 

Why are you laughing when roses are weeping — 

Weeping, I know for you? 
Pray won't you hasten where odors are creeping 

The daffodil grottos through? 

Breeze, do you know, I scarcely can hear you, 
Where do your soft feet fall? 

I'll give my life to be with you or near you, 
Come, lovely Breeze, and call. 

Ah, you sprite, now I hear you a-sighing, 

Is it for me you sigh? 
Look at the rose maids, afield they're crying, 

Why do you pass them by ? 

Are you so proud that you wooed in the garden 

Ladies in hot-house silk? 
Afield you will find gowns — begging your pardon- 

Ox-blood to white as milk. 

Why do you revel and pilfer and mingle 

Down in the lavender dells? 
Come to my side and together we'll dingle 

Many my sweet gold belLs. 

Seek not the grove where blossoms and spices 

Lavish their golden life 
Why are you careless when this is the crisis? 

You should marry a wife. 


Are you as false as the Gust, your eonsin, 
Wooing' the rose with a toast? 

I'm told by the rue you court full a dozen — 
Your love's merely a ghost. 

Now you are cross and suddenly fling to me 
-Messages rude and cold ; 

And here you advance and sullenly cling to me, 
"Whj- are you now so bold? 

And there you have ruined a curl of treasure, 
Curl of my ondine hair; 

You're false, false, I've taken your measure; 
"Devil and I may care?" 

And see, you have stolen my bonnet of yellow, 
And flung it into the sea; 

Now, never again may you. treacherous fellow, 
Venture to call on me. 


The mild fields dream in the summer haze 
And the mist ships rove the sky; 
But the flags are few, 
Where my hopes sail through, 
Nor the pennon streams on high ; 
And the shore and the crags are bleak and wild. 
For the blue is strange to the earth-born child. 

The orchards are painting their swelling fruit, 
And the vineyards are bleeding wine; 
But the flags climb high, 
When my dreams sail by, 
And my hopes grow bright and shine; 
While the shore and the crags light up for me, 
And the gales of life drive fast and free. 

The summer land of my dreams is flame, 
And the rains are drops of gold. 
And my cares glow white 
In the dream land 's light ; 
As my cheeks fade, sagged and old; 
And the flags on the moss-crags beckoning float, 
And welcoming cheers greet the tear-drenched b 




The spicy breath exhaling from the throat 

Of rosy eve and spreading beauty's blush 
Along the vibrant air descants a lyric note 

Like twang of strings upon the twilight hush, 
While tides of life are twining in the park 

Where owlets flit., as twines the prairie fire 
At night till swift the pages of the dark 

Are gold amid the Day-god's funeral pyre. 
The dying streams of daylight faintly gush 

Along the somber sky, where clouds lie stark 
And blackened from the evening's raven brush, 

Or fall in trailing ripples where the lark 
Within the meadow plumed his speckled coat. 

Or where at dusk his harpings echoed higher, 
And seemed to wed with nature and to float 

Along the white-robed clouds and to expire 

Like silvery cadence of the twanging lyre, 
Struck joyously from evening's crystal boat. 

The herald of the night in anger wrote 

A phantom legend 'thwart the pallid sky. 
Then seemed to hesitate as if to gloat 

That all of life should be condemned to die; 
Then shadows, icing all the byways through. 

Came fawning from Pandora's box in haste, 
And pestilence came forth by fits and blew 

A groaning horn along the blackened waste; 
Prom every side the shapes and horrors slipt 

Amid the trembling sprays and quaking reeds. 

And in the darkness hid their direful deeds 
And grewsome chants, and from the beaker sipt 

The mead of nightshade, to their palates tost. 

Till Earth felt sorrow like a singe of frost. 
Beside the river where the cygnets slept, 

And perfume's holiness like incense lay, 
The blighting death-damps of miasma crept 

And slimed, delighted o'er the souring clay; 
While wrigling out from hollow root and hole, 

And soaking all the night in muck and froth. 
The reptiles bade their smearing coils unroll. 

And in the blackness brewed their fatal broth, 
Until the fragrant air and murm'ring stream 

Were seething with the fester of the night. 
And flashed anon putrescence's baleful gleam. 

Where erst the sunlight ripened, gay and bright ; 
And on the breeze where poisoned refuse blew 
To gild the corpse came showers of lucent dew. 



Ah, who on earth can be a friend of Night 

That steals from life one-third its gold away ? 
That robes a funeral shroud upon the Light? — 

That springs eclipse upon the jeweled day ? 
Where are the years, unconscious, lost in sleep, 

Far worse than death that sendeth life and Light? 
Insensate years, that cause the eyes to weep 

For want of splendor the lost hours and bright 
Might shed upon the soul, to star the gloom 

That stretches like a desert, parched and black. 
Past purling brook and scarlet evening bloom 

That wait in vain to cheer the beaten track; 
For sleep lies bound — the penalty of sin. 
And Night is first when death and hell begin. 


Within the bower of blossoms by the brook. 

Where late had danced and sung the rosy throng. 
The hush of death like dreams within a book 

Has nipped the laughter and the bursts of song ; 
The sleeping buds have tied their mellow bells 

And gone to rest ■with closed and languid eyes. 
And whispered converse the dread sorrow tells 

Of pristine pleasures under glowing skies; 
Across each crimson face or bright or gold 

Has Death his symbol planted, mean and sad, 
And Mis'ry comes so wrinkled, pale and old. 

For e'en the blossoms may grow meek or mad 
With horror lest the Day so glad and bright 
Come never back to check the dreadful Night. 


The feathered min-strels in the drowsy grove 

Sleep in the starlight and betimes awake 
To sob unto their mates their tale of love 

For Light that soon shall rapturously break 
Along the blushing hills; while from their nest 

A strange, soft sound ascendeth like a prayer 
That winds along from many a tender breast. 

And breaks like music on the troubled air: 
And from the murm'ring grove and beryl plain 

The chantings of sweet voices throb and flow — 
There pulse the life-song or the rapt refrain 

That rises heav'nward from the hearts below, 
Till all the landscape rings with tender song 
That Light may race the fields and clouds along. 



The tender psalms low-chanted on the air 

By hearts in hovels and in mansions grand, 
Are but the hope that rises with a prayer, 

And nightly pulsates from the kneeling band, 
And to the weary soul brings peace and trust, 

Like crystal dripping to the fevered tongue. 
That Light again may come with morning's gust. 

And wander the bright fields and groves among ; 
And so the soul, bewildered with the cares 

Of life, goes trustingly to sleep and rest, 
And waits the laugh of bluet Morn and weal's 

The shield of resurrection on its breast ; 
For surely as the Night brings transient death 
Shall resurrection come with Morning's breath. 


As comes the first faint tinge upon the fruit 

That in the autumn near shall blush with pride, 
Or as the distant song-pulse, sweet and flute, 

Reveals the brown thrush singing to his bride. 
So streaming through the eastern sapphire bars 

The wavering gleams and fires of pink and gold 
Shall mantle one by one the twinkling stars. 

And blow the night lamps out so red and old — 
Shall play along the summits to'ard the West, 

And gird with flame the clumps of sleeping wood, 
That lift their leaves like lips to be caressed. 

With leal trust to the Light well understood ; 
Thus where the fading orbs of Night decline 
The eyes of dauntless Day grow sweet and shine. 


Then what a rapture bursts among the leaves. 

And waves with bliss along from vale to crest. 
And how the gushing laughter rings and weaves 

The threads of silver song from nest to nest ; 
So from the field there peal the tender bells. 

And from the grove the voice of summer sings, 
Till all the landscape with the echo swells, 

And every tongue its maze of music brings ; 
And see the blossoms lift their lovely eyes. 

And blush with joy beneath the damask glow, 
When gallant Morn comes dancing from the skies, 

And showers his kisses thick as drifting snow, 
And e'en the aspens laugh beside the sands. 
While all the maples shout and clap their hands. 



In Beanty's garden amorous pink 
Tints full many a lily eheek; 
Eyes that forge a golden link 

Chain the straying lovers meek; 

Snap, snap the fetters, fly, 
Kneeling vassal, stay and sigh; 
Fading meadows, red and sere, 
Lie within the phantom year. 

Flowers there of rarest flame 

Dream beside the lacquered wall; 
Souls of passion burn the same. 

Though the bleeding petals fall; 

Rain of sorrow, rain of hail, 
Harken to the passion tale; 
Fancy spreads her silent tents, 
Shot with sweet enamored scents. 

Buds are ringing vesper bells, 

Chiming forth the wedding notes, 
And the storm of rapture swells 

From the flowers' lyric throats; 

Chant, chant their mystic tale. 
Sky above a passion vale ; 
Sing, for life is in the cast, 
Sing ere love and life go past. 

Beauty's garden dancing there, 

Iloming all the walks of love; 
Pleading steps both fleet and fair 
Thread the fields of sky above : 

Youth is nimble, youth is sweet, 
Culls the an.xious, rarest kiss, 

Lauglis to .see the cynics meet, 
Seals the flame with this — and this.
